This program reminds people of simple actions that can be taken to deter criminal activity. While officers are conducting preventative patrol, they often times notice conditions such as an open garage door, open car door, or insufficient lighting that may pose a threat to personal property.  In our efforts to keep Countryside safe, our officers may leave a card indicating the condition they viewed and some security measures that can be taken.  When possible, our officers contact the homeowner or business owner directly. In the event contact can not be made, our officers will leave a card.
