Home Safety Tips

 

Often, an intruder will be deterred from entering your home if you make it a noisy, difficult, time-consuming, and highly visible task.

When away, try to make your home look as if it is occupied. Leave lights and a radio on. Have a friend or neighbor get your mail and newspaper, or cut the grass if needed. Be creative when hiding your valuable; burglars often go straight to the bedroom to look under mattresses, in bedside stands, and in closets for money and jewelry. Be a nosy neighbor by reporting suspicious activity.
