  • Burglary Prevention Tips:
  • Make your home look occupied, and make it difficult to break in.
  • Lock all outside doors and windows before you leave the house or go to bed. Even if it is for a short time, lock your doors!
  • Never leave notes on your door such as "Gone shopping".
  • Leave lights on when you go out. If you are going to be away for a length of time, connect some lamps to automatic timers to turn them on in the evening and off during the day.
  • Keep your garage door closed and locked.
  • Use curtains on garage and basement windows
  • Leave blinds open for visibility and as a deterrent to criminals 
  • Don't use motion detectors; photocell sensors are best for outdoor use.  
  • Lawn mowers, snow blowers, barbecues and bicycles are best stored out of sight.
  • Arrange for your lawn to be mowed if you are going away for an extended time.
  • Check your locks on doors and windows and replace them with secure devices as necessary.
  • Pushbutton locks on doorknobs are easy for burglars to open. Install deadbolt locks on all your outside doors.
  • Sliding glass doors are vulnerable. Special locks are available for better security.
  • Other windows may need better locks. Check with a locksmith or hardware store for alternatives.

If your home is broken into (if you find an unexplained open/broken window or door):

  • Do not enter – the perpetrator may still be inside.
  • Use a neighbor's phone to call police.
  • Do not touch anything or clean up until Sheriff's Deputies have inspected for evidence.
  • Write down license plate numbers of any suspicious vehicles.
  • Note the descriptions of any suspicious persons.
