Crime Stats – Week of 2-19-12

• Keep all doors and windows closed and securely fastened. Doors should have deadbolt locks and All windows should have operable locks.

• Create the illusion that you are home by using timers on lights, radios and TV’s. Make your residence appear occupied, even when no one is home.

• Keep the perimeter of your home well lit.

• Keep some shades and blinds up and curtains open to maintain a normal, everyday appearance in your residence.

• Keep shrubbery trimmed away from entrances and walkways. Large and ornate hedges may be beautiful but they also provide a hiding place for burglars who need only a minute to break in through a window or door.
