Holiday Safety Tips

The MUD pays to have off duty city police officers do extra patrol in Shadow Creek Ranch, including an additional shift from mid-November to mid-January during the holiday season when crime is up. Please be aware of the following:

  • large displays of gifts should not be visible through windows or doors
  • any valuables left in a vehicle, including newly purchased items in shopping bags, should be locked in the trunk or placed out of sight
  • install alarm systems in homes, activate the alarm, and display the alarm company’s sign in the front yard
  • personal items such as shoes left on a doorstep can indicate to a burglar if a resident is home
  • contact the police department to request a close patrol for dates when you are out of town if no one is checking on your home
