While we consider North Downtown a safe place to live, our neighborhood is not immune to car or home break-ins. If you or someone you know has been a victim or becomes a victim of a crime, please report it, regardless of how small. The non-emergency number (434.977.9041) or the city police website (http://www.charlottesville,org/police) are available options for reporting if you choose not to call 911. If you are a victim of a home invasion, call 911 immediately. The following are a few tips that have been shared in the past but worth a reminder:

  1. Lock your vehicle and your home.
  2. Remove your valuables from the car.
  3. Never leave anything of value in your car in plain sight.
  4. Leave your exterior house lights on, if you don’t have motion detector lights.
  5. If you see or hear anything suspicious in your neighborhood, call the police to investigate.
