The North Miami Police Department is launching our #9PMroutine. The #9PMroutine is a nightly reminder to residents to remove valuables from their vehicles, lock their vehicle doors, lock the doors to their residences, turn on exterior lights and activate all alarms and security systems.
Every night we will send out a nightly reminder at 9pm to lock up. We ask residents to set a nightly reminder on their smart phones or other devices that will remind them to follow the #9pmroutine.
Criminals look for easy targets. You can make it more difficult for them by following the #9PMroutine! Many vehicle burglaries, and to a lesser degree, stolen vehicles, occur as a result of vehicles being left unlocked. Criminals walk through neighborhoods, trying vehicle door handles, hoping to find an unlocked vehicle. The best way to prevent vehicle burglaries is to remove all of your valuables, lock your vehicle’s doors upon exiting and take the keys to the vehicle inside your residence.
Join us and follow the #9pmroutine each night. Ensure your vehicles and residence are locked and secured!
It's Time to Lock Up!
At 9:00pm each evening, do a security check and verify:
> Vehicles, residences, garages, windows, gates and sheds are locked > Tools, firearms, bikes, keys and other valuables are secured or brought inside. > Activate exterior lights, security cameras and alarm systems.
