To help prevent burglaries in your home, here are a few helpful hints:
1. "Case" your own house! Yes, that`s right. Look around your home to see if there are any easy ways for a burglar to enter. If there are, you should consider security doors, windows, gates, deadbolt locks, or better yet, a security alarm system. The harder you make it for burglars to get in, the faster they will become discouraged and leave your premises. Also, check to see if your valuables are visible from the street through your windows - if so, move them.
2. Leave a light on. Even if you are only making a quick run to the store, keep your home well lit inside and out.
3. Prune trees and shrubbery. The perfect hiding place for burglars is in overgrown bushes!
