Helpful Hints

  • Most important, make your house appear that someone is always home.
  • Do not stop your mail and newspaper. Have a trusted neighbor pick them up each day.
  • Have your blinds and curtains open during the day, and closed at night.
  • On garbage pickup day, have a neighbor take out your trash containers.
  • If you have a second car, leave it in the driveway. A car in the driveway tells the potential burglar that someone may be home.
  • If you have a garage door with an electric opener, unplug it and also make sure that you lock it.
  • Use timers on lights, radios, tv's, etc., and set them to go on and off at different times.
  • Turn off the ringers on your phones. Most phones come with switches to either lower the volume of ringers or turn them off all together.
  • If you're going to be gone for any length of time, make arrangements to have your lawn mowed.
