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.
