Watch for suspicious persons in your neighborhood and on your property. If you see anything or anyone suspicious don't bother calling the Greenville County Sheriff's non-emergency phone number because they tend to put people on hold up to 30 or 45 minutes before taking your call. Call 911 and a deputy should arrive within about twenty minutes to a half hour.
