When it comes to your home, make sure you have a routine when leaving or going to bed at night. Our officers regularly find garage doors that have been left open over night, which creates a perfect opportunity for thefts and burglaries.
Make sure doors are closed and locked, even if you are home or just in the yard working. Motion lights are very effective in deterring criminal activity as are any landscape lighting.The use of timers for lights and televisions/radios are good if you plan on being away for an extended period of time.
During vacations or long weekends, have a neighbor or relative check your property regularly and report anything suspicious.
