Our parking meters are regularly monitored to ensure that they are working correctly, but there are times when malfunctions do occur.
The Police Department has placed stickers on all the meters that read: “For meter malfunctions, immediately contact SAPD at (415) 258-4610.” This will ensure that we know when a meter is broken and can arrange to have it fixed immediately. It will also ensure that the malfunction has been reported and citations will not be issued for that meter.
Bicycle thefts from residences throughout the Ross Valley area are a continuing problem. The thefts usually occur during the daylight hours while the residents are away. To protect yourself and to help the San Anselmo Police Department in preventing these types of burglaries, take the following into consideration:
- Secure bicycles with a lock and out of plain sight
- When leaving town for an extended period of time, notify a neighbor and tell them who is allowed on the property and when you will be returning
- Report any unusual noises
- Be aware of unfamiliar vehicles parked in front of the property
- Be alert to incessantly barking dogs
- In the evenings, maintain proper lighting on and around your property
By implementing these simple safety tips, you can help reduce "crimes of opportunity" and assist the police in preventing these thefts.
