Protect Your Home

  • Lock your doors and windows, most burglars enter through unlocked entries.
  • Don’t leave packages or gifts near windows or where they can be easily seen.
  • Turn on all outside lights to deter burglars.
  • Keep garage doors closed unless you are in the immediate area.
  • Don't announce that you will be away from home on social network sites or answering machines.
  • Don't leave garage door openers in your vehicle while parked outside.
  • If you have an alarm system, use it.
  • Avoid having large displays of gifts visible from windows and doors.
  • If you travel and are away from home, set an automatic timer for your lights and ask a trustworthy neighbor(s) to keep an eye on your home.
