Crime Prevention Tips


The Fountain Police Department has issued tips for minimizing your risk of falling victim to a crime. Though sent by Fountain police, these tips are a good reminder for all citizens.

FPD recommends the following crime prevention procedures:

• Make closing and securing all exterior doors and windows a bedtime necessity
• Don’t forget about the garage, vehicles, RVs, and bicycles
• Replace inoperative light bulbs in exterior lamps
• Your home shouldn’t look like you are away. (Leave a light on, pickup your newspapers, etc.)
• Use an alarm system
• For Fountain specifically, solicitors are prohibited before 9 a.m. and after 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday, prohibited on Sunday, and must have a business license (Fountain Municipal Code Chapter 9.48)
• Avoid any in-home demonstrations or inviting solicitors into your home
• Call the police for any activity or occurrence that is suspicious or unusual
• Watch for unusual activities in your neighborhood (a person may have locked their keys in the car or maybe it is an opportunistic thief)
• Join and participate with your local neighborhood watch groups
