This may seem like an obvious one, but statistics show that 30 percent of burglaries are unforced entries – meaning people are leaving their windows and doors unlocked. So whether you’re just going to the grocery store down the road or running a quick errand, take the extra time to make sure ALL of your home’s entry points are secure. Yes, even the windows upstairs. While you may not climb to the second story of your home just to get in, a burglar certainly will. What’s a little extra work for a nice haul and quick money? Don’t make their job any easier. Lock up!
And remember, the side door hidden inside your garage is not invincible, even if the garage door is down. It is easy to tamper with and manipulate electric garage doors.
