Burglary Prevention Tips
- Lock all doors and windows.
- Get to know your neighbors. A great deterrent to crime. Extra sets of eyes keeping a watch on your property, reporting suspicious activity, and helping keep you safe. Be sure and return the favor and keep an eye on their home, too.
- Remember, your room door is actually your front door. Keep it locked even when leaving only for a few minutes.
- Interior lighting is necessary to show signs of life and activity inside a residence at night. A darken home or room night-after-night sends the message to burglars that you are away on a trip.
- If you come home to find an unexplained open/broken window or door
- Do not enter - the perpetrator may still be inside.
- Use a cell phone or neighbor's phone to call police.
- Do not touch anything or clean up until the police have inspected for evidence.
- Write down the license plate numbers of any suspicious vehicles.
- Note the descriptions of any suspicious persons.
- Ensure valuables are not visible from the street, especially high-end electronics.
- Mark and record serial numbers of electronics and other valuables
- If you use web sites such as Facebook or twitter, never add status updates, comments, or pictures that suggest you’re out of town or on vacation.
