Clearwater Police Plan Anti-Crime Seminar On Saturday

The Clearwater Police Department, in conjunction with the Clearwater Aging Well Center, will conduct a seminar Saturday to help residents reduce their risk of becoming crime victims.

The session will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Clearwater Aging Well Center, which is located at the Long Center, 1501 N. Belcher Road.

Detectives will discuss ways to reduce the likelihood of being victim of a crime. From cutting back trees and bushes that can provide cover to suspects to installing motion-detector lighting, there are a number of ways that homeowners can make their residences more safe. Making sure garage doors are closed and that car doors are locked is also important.

Clearwater residents are encouraged to bring smaller items - cameras, laptops, video games, etc - so they can be engraved. That helps in the recovery process in case they are stolen.

For more information on the event, call (727) 724-3070.
