Laurel County Sheriff John Root is again offering “Away from Home” extra patrols during summer vacation. He is also offering these safety tips for when you are away.
• Do not let others know you will be out of town…
• Stop mail delivery
• Arrange for lawn to be mowed
• Set house lights on timers
• Arrange for a trusted friend close by to watch for any suspicious activity around your home and report it
• Do not post trip pictures on facebook until you return home
To be placed on the “Away from Home” extra patrol list send them information on where your home is and when you will be gone and deputies will provide extra patrols in that area while you are gone. Call the Sheriff’s Office at (606) 864-6600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
