Police Urge Caution If Utility Crews Ask To Enter Homes

SCPD says all workers should have proper ID when working to restore power.

Suffolk County Police are reminding residents that Long Island Power Authority crews and crews from other power companies from across the United States continue working in neighborhoods throughout the County restoring power to customers.

Police said it’s important to note that most of the utility work being performed is outdoors on power lines, utility poles and tree clearance and in most cases, utility crews will not need to enter residences.

If a homeowner is approached by someone who demands to enter their home and claim that they work for a utility company, residents are encouraged to ask for identification if they become suspicious. All utility company employees will have photo identification, including out-of-state crews that are working with LIPA. Also, look for a company logo on the person’s uniform and vehicle.

Police said anyone who encounters a suspicious person should call 911 for police response.
