Information and Tips to Keep U-Hills Safe

Hello neighbors,

Safety is of upmost importance. Each of us have an important role to play in keeping each other safe.

 

Get to Know Your Neighbors

Research shows that the most effective way to keep neighborhoods safe and deter home burglaries and other crime is to have good relationships with your neighbors. It makes a difference to have each other’s backs. Please get to know each other.

 

Report Suspicious Activity

Please report all suspicious activity to the Denver Police Department. When you see something in the act, call 911. When you see something after the fact, call 720-913-2000.

 

Keep Porch Lights ON IN THE NIGHT and OFF IN THE DAY

Multiple studies have shown that less crime occurs along well-lit streets. Keeping your porchlight on during the night only costs an estimated $8-12 per year and can help deter crime. But, do remember to turn your porch light off during the day—leaving porch lights on during daylight hours can signal no one is home.

 

Keep Garage Doors Closed

Garage doors left open can be an invitation for theft and/or can be considered an easy point of access to the rest of your home. Keep garage doors closed to deter crime.

 

Report Street Light Outages

It’s quick and easy. Report street light outages to Xcel at:
