- Make sure your vehicle doors are locked at all times. It only takes a second to pull items out of a car.
- Make sure your garage door is closed when you are not outside. Crime happens in the middle of the day and items easily can be removed from your residence.
- Make sure your windows and doors are locked. If you plan on being out for just a few minutes use the safety locks on new windows - if your windows are older, close and lock them.
- Entry doors open during the day provides wonderful sunlight, but, storm and screen doors should be kept locked to keep an unwanted visitor from wandering in.
