Love Your Neighbors

Share the love this Valentine's Day by checking in on your neighbors! Has it been a while? Take a couple of minutes to make sure you have updated contact information for the neighbors who live around you. Exchanging numbers and keeping an eye out can help keep all of us safe--most crimes in Lowry are those of opportunity, so a little prevention can go a long way! Maybe you forgot to close your garage door; maybe there's a large package on the porch across the street; what if your neighbor's sprinkler system has malfunctioned and the yard is on the verge of flooding?

It is true that citywide crime is on the rise, but within Lowry rates remain relatively low. The most frequent crime in our community is theft from a motor vehicle. DPD has crime prevention tips, for vehicles as well as homes, to view here. Additionally, Councilwoman Amanda Sawyer recently passed on this list of tips to prevent crime, particularly those of opportunity:

  • Do not set out whole, empty product boxes on trash day, which can alert potential thieves to what type of items are inside your home.
  • Good lighting deters crime. Turn on your porch lights at night. 

  • If you have a garage, be sure you close the door after each use. 

  • Lock your vehicles and remove valuables from sight.

  • Use a steering wheel lock like the CLUB (2 prong) device, available at Ace Hardware for $24 and on Amazon for $26.

  • Be aware of how your home looks - try to leave an appearance that you are home at all times. 

  • Collect mail and packages from your porch ASAP. 

  • Get a Ring or other camera doorbell.

  • Install an alarm system on your home. If you are unable to do so, even having a sign or sticker from a local alarm company in your yard or at your door has been shown to deter criminals.


If you’d like to get more involved, DPD’s Neighborhood Watch Program is holding a virtual training session later this month. The Neighborhood Watch Program works by encouraging neighbors to get to know one another and by creating awareness through Implicit Bias education. The training is Wednesday, February 24, at 6pm; email to RSVP.


As always, if you see a crime in progress, call 911. For nonemergencies, ranging from stop sign visibility to public safety issues, call 311. For concerns or questions specific to Lowry, contact our DPD Community Resource Officers Matthew Grimsley and Mike Borquez.
