Crime Tip of the Week

As we approach the winter holidays, you may travel and go on vacation. At the same time, snow and the cold weather are approaching. Here are a few precautions you should take to protect your home.

If it snows, ask a neighbor to shovel snow in your driveway. Snow left in your driveway may tip-off criminals that you have left your residence.

Consider purchasing an automatic timer for your lights. If a burglar sees that your home has lights that are on, he or she will be less likely to invade your home.

Ask the post office to stop delivery. Large piles of mail and/or newspapers can be a sign that you are not home.

Make sure all of your doors and windows are locked. Leaving only one open, by accident, can allow easy access into your home.
