HELP PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST BURGLARIES
More than 62% of home burglaries took place between 6 am and 6 pm.
Six out of 10 people are being robbed while they’re at work.
84% of burglaries are breaking and entering, not just stealing lawn furniture and maintenance equipment. After getting on the property their next attempt is to get inside.
Some helpful suggestions:
- Trim shrubs and trees that could provide cover for a prowler.
- Install motion lights in darker areas of yard.
- Install timers for inside lights when away from home.
- Discontinue newspaper delivery if vacationing or traveling.
- Install a good security system, with a non-specific sign in your yard. Example “This property protected by monitored alarm system”.
