Crime Prevention Tip:

You should be familiar with the security features offered in your area and utilize those features. The Swimming Center has lockers available for use. You should use such lockers to store your valuables while you are swimming. A quality keyed pad lock is a preferred method of securing your locker, but a combination pad lock is still better than simply placing your property on the bleachers.
