9PM routine

Have you seen or heard about the 9PM Routine on social media? It's become a popular - and simple - way for folks to to protect their home and property. Every night at 9:00PM, we encourage the community to lock up property, turn on lights and bring in valuables to reduce the likelihood of falling victim to property crimes. This campaign has proved vast success throughout the country and we look forward to implementing it in Washington County. Visit the 9PM Routine page or follow our social media accounts to learn more: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram
