SAFETY AT HOME
Crime Prevention Tips
 
Thieves usually want to get in and out of a house quickly. Thus, they generally look for small, easy to carry items such as smart phones, jewelry, or prescription drugs (particularly pain killers). Since most of us keep our jewelry and prescriptions in the master bedroom and bath, these are often the first rooms a thief will enter. Consider moving these items to a secure location in another room.
 
Most robbers gain access to homes through sliding glass doors. Please purchase a kit from the hardware store which allows you to secure your sliding glass doors(s). You will still be able to open the door from the inside. Putting a stick in the track does little because robbers gain access by lifting the standard sliding glass door up and out of its track.
 
If you have expensive electronics, make a copy of the receipt, copy down the model and serial numbers, and take a picture of the item(s). This helps the police find and identify any stolen items.
 
If you purchase or own expensive jewelry which is not kept in a safe, take pictures of the items. Jewelry, as well as electronics, is usually quickly taken to a pawn shop by thieves, and pictures help the police. As with electronics, keep a copy of any receipts.
 
Consider adding additional motion detector lights to the outside of your house. If you do not want to go to the expense of hiring an electrician to wire in a motion detector light, consider a solar motion detector flood light. These lights do not have to be wired in and can be easily installed by a handyman (or a handy homeowner!). Solar lights are not a perfect solution but are better than no lights at all.
 
IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE AWAY FOR A WEEKEND OR VACATION, PLEASE MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO HAVE A NEIGHBOR PICK UP YOUR MAIL, NEWSPAPERS, AND PACKAGES DAILY. ABOVE ALL, KEEP YOUR HOME AND YOUR CAR LOCKED!
