Crime Prevention Tip:
Please check your garage doors before going to bed. Make sure they are closed. Don't leave garage door openers in your vehicles if you park your vehicles outside. This is one way that you can crime proof your home! As always, call us at 509-628-0333 if you see anything suspicious in your neighborhood.
