Safety Tips

The Old Westbury Police Department would like to issue the following recommendations to our residents to help safeguard your vehicles and your property:

  • Lock your car doors at all times, day and night, especially if you keep a garage door opener in your vehicle.
  • Never leave valuables inside your car. If you do, make sure they are not visible from the outside.
  • Never leave or hide a smart key or spare key anywhere in or on your vehicle
  • When programming your vehicle's navigation system, do not set your home address as "Home." Label it as something else.
  • Utilize sufficient exterior lighting on your home
  • If you have a home security system, check that your cameras and alarm are functioning properly.

The Old Westbury Police Department thanks you for taking the time to read this important message.
