NORFOLK, Va - We talk with MPO R. Whitley from Norfolk Police about some ways we can protect ourselves and our property from some of the unique challenges that come with the change of seasons.

Some top tips...

1. Be alert to your surroundings.
2. See something, say something: report suspicious activity in your neighborhood.
3. Remove all your valuables from your vehicle.
4. Illuminate your entrances and exits. Lighting in the best deterrent of crime.
5. Get to know your neighbors.
