Simple Prevention Tips

 

  • Never leave a house key in an obvious place outside.
  • Remove keys and garage door openers from your vehicles, especially those parked outside.
  • Lock doors and windows, including garage doors. This includes the door to your attached garage. During summer months, use secondary locks to secure windows in unattended rooms.
  • Install locks on gates. Solid fences create a concealment area for offenders. Unlocked gates provide them easy access to an area where neighbors and bystanders cannot observe activity.
  • Do not leave tools or climbing devices out such as ladders, storage containers, and outdoor furniture that allow someone to gain access to your home.
  • Block visibility to valuables such as electronics and jewelry in the home by covering windows or move valuables out of sight from windows.
  • Create an appearance of occupancy. Residential burglaries happen during the day when residents are gone to school or work. Making it appear that someone is home during these times can be a deterrent.
  • Keep your garage door closed even when you are home.
