LOCK all doors and windows at all times.
LOCK all vehicles parked in driveways and remove all valuables.
LIGHT the exterior of your home.
ALARM your home if you have a burglar alarm system.
ALERT the police via 911 of any suspicious activity or individuals.
Holiday times often show a spike in home burglaries. These home security practices should be part of homeowners’ routines throughout the year but heightened awareness is very important during this time of year.
