Ways to Prevent Car Break-Ins

Posted on: September 30th, 2021 by jhaddix

The Village of South Lebanon and the Warren County Sheriff’s South Lebanon Post would like to remind everyone about some things you can do to prevent car break-ins.

Thefts from cars tend to be opportunistic crimes. The majority of these thefts occur when a car is left unlocked. Even if your car is parked in your driveway, in front of your house, inside your garage, or anywhere else, be sure to keep your doors locked. Simply locking your doors can deter would be perpetrators who may be checking for unlocked doors in order to take whatever is visible in your vehicle.

Other ways to prevent car break-ins include:

  • Ensuring that your vehicle is secured with the windows rolled all the way up and your car alarm (if applicable) engaged.
  • Avoid leaving items, or proof of items, visible in the car. This includes spare change, sunglasses, any bags, power cords, adapters, GPS units, and more. Anything that may appear of value, or allude to items of value being in the car, should be hidden from view so as not to pique the interest of would be thieves.
  • Get into the habit of stashing items in the trunk before you arrive at a destination.
  • Try to park in well-lit areas and avoid your vehicle being isolated, concealed by larger vehicles, fences, or foliage.
  • Be sure to report break-ins. If you witness a break-in in process, please call 911 immediately and provide as much detail and information as possible including your location, description of the suspect, direction they may go after, and any other pertinent information the Sheriff’s department would find helpful in tracking down the subject. Be safe in doing this and do not put yourself in a potentially dangerous situation.
  • In the event your purse or wallet is stolen, contact your bank and credit card company immediately to cancel any cards or put a hold on your accounts. This is also good time to ask the bank if your card or account has been used recently. In most cases, suspects will try and quickly use your accounts before they are closed. You should also continue to monitor your credit in the following weeks for suspicious activity.

Doing these things can help keep you and your possessions safe and avoid car break-ins.

2021 Leaf Collection Program Information

Posted on: September 22nd, 2021 by jhaddix

The South Lebanon Public Works Department is gearing up for its annual leaf-collection service beginning in October, 2021. Since trees lose their leaves at varying times, collection times have been adjusted to accommodate the tree cycles.

To collect leaves more effectively, we request that you rake leaves into the street approximately 12 inches away from the curb to allow rainfall to flow down the curb and into the storm inlets.  If your street does not have curbs, line up your row of leaves on the pavement as close to the shoulder of the road as possible to leave the maximum amount of street surface open for vehicles.  DO NOT park vehicles in the street until leaves have been removed.

Please ensure that there are not any foreign objects hidden in the leaf piles.  These objects can cause significant damage to our equipment and thereby causing costly repairs and a delay in the program.

Please have your leaves raked and ready for pickup by 7:00 a.m. on the FIRST day of your scheduled pickup.  When the crews are scheduled to be in your area on consecutive days, they will be on your street only one of those days, but not all.  If you live on a street that permits on-street parking, be a good neighbor and only rake your leaves to the street during the first day of your scheduled time for leaf pick-up to avoid creating an obstacle for on street parking until the next scheduled pick-up day.

There may be times when the quantity of leaves in one area is so heavy that the leaf collection crews will begin earlier than scheduled. In these cases, crews will return to your area on the days scheduled as well.

An early snowfall will hamper our leaf collection efforts since some of the same trucks that are used to pick up leaves will be needed for our snow plowing efforts. In case of an early snow prior to a leaf collection, leaves raked to the curb for collection will likely be plowed onto the roadway along with the snow.  Weather permitting, any remaining leaves will be collected.

Should you miss the opportunity to participate in the program on the scheduled dates, please bag your leaves and place them at the curb with your weekly trash for pick-up.
