Securing your home!
Did you know… weekdays between 12:30 and 2 pm are the most popular times for break-ins. Criminals look for periods of time when most people are gone and at work.
So, how do you keep your home safe? Here are a few tips!
- Be sure to lock all windows, deadbolts, fences and arm security systems if you have them. These are specifically what thieves look for when planning to burglarize your home!
- Always be cautious of what you post on social media accounts. Criminals scout profiles looking for home addresses or any information that can be used to locate and steal from you.
- Keep large trees and bushes manicured in your yards as they can shield the site of your neighbors and protect a burglar trying to get in.
- When you do leave the house, put your valuables out of sight. For example, don’t leave the curtains open for every one to see inside your home.
