Hope everyone is ready for the upcoming holidays. Thanksgiving is the busiest travel time for Americans. Over 50% of us will travel 50 or more miles from home to spend time with family and friends. As we approach this busy time I would like to remind everyone to think about securing your home if you do travel. I have included a link from ProtectAmerica.org, which will include a checklist to help remind you to secure your home before leaving. To find out more go to http://www.protectamerica.com/static/pdf/holiday-home-security.pdf and be sure to call the Police Department so we can keep a watch on your home as well.
Also many will be shopping at our area's fantastic Malls and Shopping Centers. When doing this please keep in mind to hide all valuables in your car, lock your car and ladies, please take your purse with you, and do not leave it in your car or trunk. Even with heightened security around the shopping areas during the holidays, several burglaries to autos occur. If a thief is able to steal your identification and/or credit and bank cards, they are able wipe out your checking account or max out your credit cards before you are even aware they are gone.
If all of us work together, we can help reduce crime. As always, don't hesitate to phone 911 to report any suspicious persons or activity. Also if you have any questions about crime prevention, you may always contact me or any of my officers.

Most real estate agents agree, there is nothing more important for curb appeal than to have beautiful, well cared for trees in your yard. The best way to do this is to keep the dead cut out of your trees and to keep them well fed. In the long run it can increase the value of your home. Beautiful, healthy trees improve the overall appearance of our community and have been a tradition in Eastborough. So let's keep up the tradition and maintain the value of our homes by taking the following steps:
Well cared for yards have also been an Eastborough tradition. Let's keep the pride in our city. Don't hesitate to call City Hall for a recommendation for an arborist/tree trimmer or lawn care expert.More Eastborough News...
