Aspen, Colo. – June 9, 2022 – Recently, the Aspen Police Department was called to two home burglaries in the Aspen area. Homes were unoccupied at the time of entry. 

The Aspen Police Department advises homeowners and property management companies to take proper precautions to reduce the chance of properties being burglarized. If there is a security alarm system for the home, set it every time the property is left unattended and properly train all users on how to operate the system.

It’s important to register security alarm systems with the Aspen Police Department; Aspen Police only responds to security alarm activations if the system is registered, per City ordinance.

Additional precautions one can take include updating security alarm systems and adding second-floor motion sensors and glass break sensors to areas with large windows or glass doors. Further, if a home is left unoccupied, make it appear occupied by using light timers, or leaving on an interior light or television. The use of “smart lights” can make the home appear as though someone is home.

Property owners are also encouraged to let neighbors know if they are away from their home for extended periods of time.

If suspicious activity is observed, please call law enforcement and report it immediately.
