How to Protect Your Home From Burglaries

AT HOME 
  • Do not keep large amounts of money or other valuables at home.              
  • Lock outside doors at all times, even when you are on the premises.              
  • Do not open the door to strangers.              
  • Install dead bolts              
  • When you move into a new house or apartment, have new locks installed.              
  • Check door moldings for tight fit.              
  • Doors should be hinged so no pins can be removed from outside.              
  • Replace locks with the double-cylinder type (which also need keys on the inside), particularly doors with glass panels.              
  • Keep garage and tool shed locked.              
  • Remove all obstructions in your yard that could conceal a burglar breaking into your house. 
AWAY FROM HOME 
  • Purchase a timer to switch lights on and off.              
  • rrange to have mail, milk and newspaper deliveries discontinued or taken care of by a responsible neighbor.              
  • Inform neighbors and local police of your traveling plans so that special attention will be paid to your home. 
HELP THE POLICE HELP YOU 
  • Write down the license numbers of vehicles used by suspicious persons in your neighborhood.              
  • Keep an inventory of valuables so you will know immediately if anything is missing. Include photographs of jewels and serial numbers of other costly items.
