Crime Prevention and Safety

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.
  • Arrange 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.
