Apartment Security & Safety Tips

Here at Oak Park Apartments tenant safety is number one. In order to ensure that our tenants are as safe as possible we are offering some simple precautionary security tips that anyone can easily put into practice.


  • List only your last name on your doorbell/mailbox.
  • If you are living by your self add another “fake” last name to your doorbell/mailbox to give the impression that you are not alone.
  • Be alert when walking to and from your apartment – and no earbuds!
  • Get to know your neighbors and building staff.
  • Never let a stranger into your building. No matter how harmless they may look.
  • An unpublished/unlisted phone number is smart (and yes, you can do this with a cell phone number).
  • Be smart on social media.  Do not advertise a vacation or time away from your apartment before you leave.
  • Download a free safety app to your smartphone. Practice how to use it.
  • Make sure all door/window locks work – if not report it – then make sure to keep them locked.
  • Close your blinds. Do not let the world know your comings and goings.
  • Be informed on what type of crime is in your area.
  • Use timers on lights and/or your T.V. – especially when are away – you are less likely to be robbed if it looks or sounds like someone is home.
  • When lights burn out in the halls and stairwells – report it.
  • Take in mail, newspapers and packages daily.
  • Report suspicious activity. Trust your gut. Call the Oak Park police non-emergency number or if you feel you are in danger call 911 immediately.
