Burglar

When you are away from your home, make it look occupied, make it difficult to break in!

 

  • Lock all outside doors before you leave or go to bed.

  • Lock all windows and consider installing an alarm system.

  • Leave lights on when you go out.  If you are gone for any length of time, it is a good idea to leave a radio playing and to connect some lamps to automatic timers.

  • Keep your garaged door closed and locked.

  • Don't allow daily deliveries to accumulate. Ask a neighbour, friend or relative to take in your mail, newspapers and advertising if you are going to be gone for any length of time.

  • Arrange to have your lawn cut in summer and walks shoveled in winter.

  • Never leave keys under flowerpots, doormat, inside locked mailboxes or in other "secret" hiding places, burglars know them all.

  • Keep a detailed inventory of all your personal possessions.
