Action News Jax Crime and Safety Expert Ken Jefferson says if you notice suspicious activity, it’s best to call 911 first and to not confront anyone.

“Create a habit of locking your door when you get out of your cars looking your windows locking your doors to your apartment or your home. Make it a habit to do it every time you walk inside or every time you get out,” said Jefferson.
