While you are away…

Imagine returning from a trip to find that your home has been burglarized.  Having someone house sit for you is not always an option.  Try these few security tips:

  • Make your house look occupied.  Have inside and outside lights on timers.  Also try a radio on a timer.
  • Ask a neighbor or friend to pick up mail and newspapers while you are away.
  • Keep your yard clean.  Mow the grass and prune hedges before (so they do not block windows) you leave. 
  • Lock all doors and windows.  Never leave a spare key hidden outside your house.
  • Call the police and block watch captain to notify them that you will be away.
  • And if you have one, activate your security system.
