NEW THIS MONTH
You can help protect your friends and family when you lead by example and remind others to buckle up. It turns out 9 out of 10 people fasten their seat belt when asked to do so. So speak up and buckle up, every time on every trip. HPD enforces seatbelt use anytime a vehicle is in motion.

Own a bike, lawnmower, or other equipment?
engrave it , lock it, or LOSE IT
Warm weather and bike riding go hand in hand. But if your bike is stolen, hiking may be more your speed... Here are a few suggestions for keeping your valuables safe and secure.
Make note of serial numbers, makes, and models of items to be stored. Take pictures of these items as well.
Engrave your items. Engraving your items allows you to place a mark or number only you can recognize making recovery and identification of stolen items easier.
When it's practical to do so, secure movable items to heavier items. If it requires too much work for a thief to steal your belongings, he/she will typically move on to a easier target.
