Crime Prevention Tip of the Week

Locks, Doors and Windows
  • Install good deadbolt locks in your doors and use them, even when  you are home. Many burglars have entered through unlocked doors or windows.
  • Avoid door locks that can be manipulated by breaking glass or door panels to reach inside.
  • Make sure outside doors, including the one between your garage and home, are solid 1-3/4" metal or wood and fit tightly in their frames. Hinges should be on the inside.
  • Secure sliding glass doors with commercially available locks, with a rigid wooden dowel or other device in the track.
  • Keep your garage doors closed and locked.
