Community: Residential Burglars Posing as City Workers - Always Ask for ID

There have been several scam burglaries in the region this week involving suspects impersonating City employees, public utility workers, roofers, etc. This is an emerging problem and one must be vigilant. Ask vendors and workers for their ID cards. ALL Union City employees are issued picture ID cards. It is a common scam for criminals to impersonate some type of utility worker, enter into your yard, and distract you, while their accomplice is ransacking your home looking for cash, electronics, and jewelry. These types of crimes have occured locally when a sliding glass door was left unlocked, most likely due the the warm weather.

Remember to:
- Ask vendors and workers for their ID cards
- Keep your home locked (if the weather is warm, use a fan to keep cool)
