Your Vehicle

1: Look for suspicious people loitering before you park

2: Park in a well lit area when shopping after dark

3: Don’t fight over parking spaces

4: Don’t park between SUV’s, mini vans or vehicles that block you from view

5: Don’t leave valuables within site on the floor or the seats

6: Lock your vehicle with the windows all the way up

7: Walk purposefully with keys in hand to be used as a weapon if need be

8: Stay off your cell phone and stay alert to your surroundings

Shopping

1: Shop during daylight hours as much as possible

2: Shop with a buddy as much as possible

3: Never walk and text or talk on the phone. Sit or stand with your back to the wall

4: Constantly check those around you, be aware of your surroundings look people in the eye

1: Don’t overburden yourself with packages, keep one hand free at all times

2: Keep your head in a swivel always looking for danger

3: Place all packages in the truck or very back of SUV/mini van and cover

4: Do not take packages to the vehicle and then return to shopping without moving the vehicle to another parking space

5: Never stop to remove a flier or sticker from your windshield or rear window

6: If possible make a quick check of tires to ensure nothing has been placed under them

Antioch is our city, it is a reflection of us and should be a concern for each and every one of us everyday

Within recent months, we have seen a spike in the number of shootings, robberies, burglaries, Graffiti, illegal dumping, homelessness and many other things that have brought negative attention to our city and have lowered the appeal of out city.  how do we take back our city? How do we create a safe city where we can walk at all times of the day and night without fear of being mugged? How can we clean up our city?  Please share your thoughts of what areas of our city need attention, and how we can address things concerns. Lets work together and see if we can help make Antioch beautiful and safe again. 

We are just in the process of bringing in a new mayor, Sean Wright, who has  a lot of vision for the city of Antioch.  What are the top priorities for Sean to tackle? 

Lets work together to make Antioch a more competitive city and a safer place to be.
