Protect Yourself and Your Home

  • Always be aware of usual and unusual activities in your neighborhood; immediately report suspicious behavior
  • Secure all windows and doors that are accessible from the outside, including those upstairs
  • Never leave a spare key hidden outside – burglars are familiar with typical hiding places
  • Install peepholes so you can screen your visitors
  • Ask for identification from service and delivery people before letting them into your home

  • Install deadbolt locks on all exterior entrances
  • Make sure smoke detectors are working and up to code, or consider adding a monitored smoke or heat detector
  • Post emergency phone numbers by the telephone (including your cellular phone or pager numbers) for your children or babysitter to use when you are not at home
  • Make sure visitors staying at your home also know your address and where emergency numbers are located
