Do NOT Enter!

Standard

The temperature is on the rise and so are the number of home break ins. I read my hometown newspaper online each day and the number of people whose homes are being broken into really makes me sad. There was a recent case in which a group of 3 men rang a couples door bell late in the evening  and robbed them at gun point in their own home. If we can’t feel safe at home, where can we feel safe?

Many studies have shown that home break ins are highest in summer. I am assuming this is because of the number of people on vacation along with the boredom of students being out of school for summer leading them into getting in trouble.

Although you may live in a nice neighborhood or out in the country, you still are at risk of becoming a victim. Make sure you prepare yourself and your home for any situation…

Below are 4 easy ways to help keep your home safe:

1. Do not showcase pricey items: Rearrange your furniture to ensure pricey items such as flat screen TVs, computers and other electronics are not visible from the road.

2. Leave lights, televisions, and radios on: Making burglars think you are home will make them less likely to rob you.

3. Lock ALL doors and windows: I know it may seem simple but even if you are only to a neighbor’s house make sure you lock your doors and windows. This is one of the easiest steps in reducing break ins because you never know who is watching.

4. Keep spare keys inside: Thieves look for spare keys out doors (it makes their job easier). Give your spare key to a family member or neighbor in case of an emergency.
