Burglary Prevention Tips:
ü Keep your doors locked when you’re home and when you’re not. Burglaries don’t just occur at night. Almost half of all residential burglaries occur from thieves gaining entry through unlocked doors or windows.
ü Use deadbolt locks with at least a one inch throw on exterior doors
ü Keep all exterior lights on at night
ü Keep shrubs/trees clear from windows area as they could provide concealment to a would be burglar.
ü When out of town cancel newspapers and mail
ü When out of town arrange for someone to shovel your sidewalk and walkways
ü Call police about any suspicious persons or activity in your neighborhood.
