Crime Awareness Bulletin



The Fayette County Sheriff's Office asks citizens to be aware and alert as summertime approaches and starts the season for equipment thefts.  The spring and summer seasons generally experience a spike in thefts of lawn equipment, trailers, ATV's, tools and other outdoor items.  Please ensure that your tools and equipment are secured in a locked area such as a storage shed or garage.  Remove the keys from ATV's, mowers and tractors.  Investigators also state that "out of sight is out of mind."  Avoid keeping valuable items where they are in plain view to would be thieves who are looking for easy targets.  Also, take the time to copy down your serial numbers and take photographs of these items.  With the aid of serial numbers and photos, investigators stand a much greater chance of recovering stolen items and returning them to theft victims.

Preventing Vacation Season Burglaries


A vacant house — or one that appears to be vacant — is an appealing target to a burglar. This is true during the work day when everyone may be at work or school, or during a vacation, a weekend away from home, or a business trip. You can alleviate day-to-day worries and make a trip more carefree if you will take a few simple steps to reduce the possibility that your home will be burglarized or vandalized while you are gone. Although you should always be aware of leaving windows and doors closed and locked whenever you will be out of the home, there are a number of things to consider when you’re going to be away for a weekend or longer.  Contact our office at 901-465-3456 to have your home placed on vacation watch.
