Burglary Crime Prevention Tips
Secure all outside storage units and equipment. Keep lawn
mowers, barbeque grills, bicycles and other outdoor equipment stored out of
sight from passersby. And when you are making your nightly rounds checking
locked doors, don’t forget the garden shed.
Don’t leave spare keys out in the open. Hide-a-keys and door mats are not secure ways of leaving an
extra house key around. If you need to have a spare, get with a trusted
neighbor and swap keys. This way they can identify the appropriate people who
can have access to your home while you are away.
When it comes to crime there are no guarantees; anyone can be
a victim. If you are burglarized in the future, there is one final step you can
take now to help the police recover your items. Keep an up-to-date list
of serial numbers and descriptions for all your electronic devices and other
valuables. The list should include the make/brand, model number,
serial number and physical description of each item including the color, size
and other identifying characteristics. Follow these few simple steps and start
taking a proactive stance against burglars and crimes of opportunity.
