Police nation-wide, including right here in Western New York, are spreading the word about an approach called the '9 p.m. routine.'

It's all about fighting crimes of opportunity and keeping your family and home safe.

Police in the Tonawandas are using social media to spread the work about how it works. They are encouraging you to do these things at 9 p.m. every night:

Check to make sure:

- Car doors are locked

-  Windows are rolled up
