Join the 9PMRoutine

The Niskayuna Police Department is launching our 9PMRoutine. The 9PMRoutine is a nightly reminder to residents to remove valuables from their vehicles, lock their vehicle doors, lock the doors to their residences, turn on exterior lights and activate all alarms and security systems.

We will be periodically sending out nightly reminders ‪at 9pm‬ to lock up. We ask residents to set a nightly reminder on their smartphones or other devices that will remind them to follow the 9PMRoutine routine.

Criminals look for easy targets. You can make it more difficult for them by following the #9PMRoutine! Many thefts from vehicles, and to a lesser degree, stolen vehicles, occur as a result of vehicles being left unlocked. Criminals walk through neighborhoods, trying vehicle door handles, hoping to find an unlocked vehicle. The best way to prevent theft from your vehicle is to remove all of your valuables, lock your vehicle’s doors upon exiting and take the keys to the vehicle inside your residence.
