During the summer we are inevitably going to be spending more time with our family and friends and possibly leaving our homes for an extended period of time. Unfortunately, criminals know this and use certain cues to identify their next target. To help keep you and your home safe we have put together a list of things that you can do to prevent tipping off crooks.
Keep your house looking as if you’re home. Keep a car in your driveway or parking spot. If you’re driving, ask neighbors to park in front of your house.
Don’t shut all your blinds and drapes. Leave them in their usual position, but make sure nothing valuable can be seen through the windows.
Set light timers to come on at the normal after-work time.
