Home Safety Tips

October is National Crime Prevention Month

Simple steps to help protect your home:

- Always lock your doors, windows, garage and any connecting door between the garage and your home.
- Keep spare keys with a trusted neighbor, not under a doormat or planter, on a ledge, or in the mailbox.
- Set timers on lights when you’re away from home so it appears to be occupied.
- Illuminate or eliminate places an intruder might hide: the spaces between trees or shrubs, stairwells, alleys, hallways, and entry ways.
