Being Safe

The idea behind these pages is to list all those helpful tips and tricks to being safe at home, walking somewhere or even when you are away. Please send in your tips! The City of Hyattsville Police Department also has town meetings from time to time or at the request of a group of residents. These are free of charge and are really great, having been to a couple!

You can also join the City of Hyattsville Listserve ( which sends a weekly crime report, which you can view here:

You can also sign up for the "Safe City Alert System" which send a text message to you if there is an important situation you should be contacted on - the link for that is here:
