LONG HILL, NJ - The Long Hill Township Police Department is requesting your assistance as they are currently investigating multiple residential burglaries.
 
The suspect(s) were seen in the area knocking on resident’s doors and asking if they have seen their missing dog. The suspect(s) will continue to knock on doors until they find a residence that they believe is unoccupied. If ANYONE knocks on your door asking about a lost dog, please call 9-1-1 immediately and provide a description of the suspicious person. Do not hesitate. Do not call 908-647-1800. These types of burglaries have been occurring in the area.
 
Some general tips from the Long Hill Township Police Department:
 
If someone can’t be home to receive package deliveries, ship to a work address or have a neighbor remove them from your porch and keep them for you.

Always lock your residence and vehicle doors. (Double check all basement and first floor windows)

Leave interior lights, a TV and/or a radio on when away from home.

Activate your residential alarm system (If installed), when you leave the residence.

Lock your garage door leading into your residence.

Stop your mail/newspaper or arrange for a neighbor to pick it up while you’re out of town.

Do not leave phones, purses, packages or other items of value in plain sight or unattended in a car, and ensure that your vehicle is locked.

If you are going away on vacation, please contact the police department and place you residence on our vacation/vacant house check list.

Hide all expensive and sentimental jewelry/valuables in an alternative room(s) as opposed to a jewelry box and/or bedroom dresser drawers.

IMMEDIATELY report ALL suspicious vehicles or persons to police.
