Here are a few things you can do that may help keep your house off the burglar’s radar:
- Don’t advertise. Burglars look for occupancy cues such as piled up newspapers and exterior lights on 24 hrs. a day. Use inexpensive light timers and have friends or neighbors pickup circulars.
- If you do leave, make your home appear occupied. Leave a radio or TV on.
- Don’t place empty boxes outside your house that let thieves know what you have
purchased. Break the boxes down and comingle them with other recyclables..
- Refrain from leaving your blinds open to display your Christmas tree and gifts.
- Don’t leave your garage door open unnecessarily and/or unattended.
- Be cognizant of your surroundings and report all suspicious activity.
