How to Keep Safe at Home
Did you know that 40 percent of home invasions occur because a door or window was left unlocked? So, it is wise to:
  • Lock doors and windows, especially when you're home alone.
  • Secure sliding glass doors with pins to prevent both horizontal and vertical movement, especially when you're away from home for extended periods of time.
  • Fix broken locks or windows and install deadbolts on doors leading outside.
  • Replace all locks immediately upon moving into a new home.
Safe Measures for Greeting Visitors
  • Install peepholes in all exterior doors. It's always a good idea to look through your peephole viewer to see who's there before you open the door.
  • Make sure you request identification from sales or repair people before you let them in. Never leave such representatives in your home unsupervised.
How to Keep Your Valuables Safe
  • Store high-value items such as jewelry, furs and firearms in a small closet with a solid-core door, a non-removable hinge and a deadbolt lock.
  • Permanently mark your valuables with your driver's license or Social Security number. Also, keep pictures and records of all marked objects in a safe place.
  • Keep important papers, valuable jewelry and large amounts of cash in a safety deposit box.
  • Keep gift-wrapped packages hidden from outside view.
  • When you purchase new electronic equipment, do not advertise it. Break down cartons before discarding in your trash.
