How to Decrease your chances of burglary?

  • Double check all entry doors are locked, including the garage door. 
  • Look into getting smart video door bell cameras 
  • Install door sensors 
  • Pushbutton entry doorknobs are easier to open than deadbolts for burglars. Install deadbolt locks on all your outside doors or have one installed professionally 
  • Install an interior side only deadbolt or have one installed by a professional 
  • If you happen to have a sliding glass door or patio use a “blocking/security bar”
  • Look into getting security cameras installed 
  • Leave lights on when you go out. If you are going to be away for a length of time, connect some lamps to automatic timers to turn them on in the evening and off during the day.
  • Make sure the outside property is kept clear of any large bushes
