Remember these burglary prevention tips for your home

Protect Your Home’s Exterior

  • CLOSE AND LOCK ALL DOORS AND WINDOWS.  Use deadbolts with at least a one inch throw.  Window screens do not stop a burglar.
  • Make sure all first floor window air conditioning units cannot be easily removed.
  • Display your house number in plain view.
  • Install lighting at all entrances, including decks, porches, sheds and garages.
  • Trim back any overgrown trees and shrubs from window ledges. Overgrown landscaping provides burglars with a place to hide.
  • Neighbors, passing motorists and police officers should be able to see your windows and doors. Close your blinds at night.
  • Do not leave ladders in your yard. Be sure to secure them in your garage or shed.
  • Reinforce sliding glass doors with slide bolt through the frame and a block in the track.
  • Do not hide keys outside your home.
  • Do not leave your garage door openers inside your vehicle.  Lock interior garage doors.
  • Alternate the location/direction of your parked vehicle (s) to avoid predictability

Protect Your Home’s Interior

  • Install dead bolt locks on all entrance and exit doors and make sure you use them every time you leave the residence. Many burglaries occur when a homeowner leaves for only a short time.  If you leave it—lock it!
  • Install window locks. Always make sure ground floor windows are secure. There are bands of burglars who are organized.  One will distract you while a partner climbs through an unlocked window
  • Install a “Door Viewer” or “Peep Hole” so you can see who is knocking at the door. If you don’t know who it is, do not open it.
  • Do not leave information on your social networking sites or voice mail detailing your travel plans.
  • Use timers on your lights to give the appearance that someone is home. Consider leaving a radio or television on.
  • Cut up, fold or recycle boxes from recent expensive purchases instead of leaving them curbside.
  • Do not leave your garage door open when outside doing yard work or other chores.

For more information you can go to NCCo Police Department website.

    I saw two fights break out just this week. I think the sign should be removed and it should read no turn on red arrow. There are too many stupid people out there that just don’t understand the rules of the road

    I agree with Debbie. The sign is causing more confusion. The motorist are reading the sign incorrectly….they are only seeing “No turn on Red”
