Additional Crime Prevention Tips
-Lock up your home! Even if you go out for only a short time.
-Your house should appear occupied at all times. Use timers to switch lights on and off when you're not at home.
-Use your home alarm security system. You should have your alarm engaged while you are away or while you are at home. Advertise your alarm system with signs near all entry points to your house.
-Lights! A well lit exterior is a great way to deter burglars. Porch lights and motion sensitive lights.
-Secure sliding glass door. Install a security bar for sliding doors.
-Keep your garage door down, even during the day. Don't invite thieves inside your garage to look around.
-Do not leave garage door openers in your vehicles parked outside your locked garage. It might seem inconvenient to bring them in every time, but the inconvenience is well worth it by saving you the time and trouble of replacing your belongings.
