Home › news › Scott Police Allegheny County Pa. Community Advisory: Please be aware of individuals going door to door asking to check on things around your house. Do NOT walk anywhere with them or allow them into your residence. If for some reason you do exit your residence to speak with them make sure you lock your doors behind you as you exit. Distraction activity is a long term problem in residential areas where thieves try to take advantage of your sense of security in your own home. If you don’t see a valid permit or have any reason to doubt, err on the side of caution and call 911.
