Ways to Prevent Break in


  1. Tricking Burglars-  More break-ins occur during the day when many people are at work. For that reason, when you leave the house, create an illusion that someone's still there.
  2. Secure Sliding Doors and Windows- Take a strong dowel, steel bar or two-by-four and slide it into the back groove. That way, even if people can pick the lock, the rod stops the door from sliding back and opening.
  3. Get to know your neighbors- Crime tends to be lower in tight-knit communities because neighbors are more likely to look out for each other and can easily spot a stranger. Your neighbors can be one of your best assets in crime prevention.
  4. Stay Vigilant- Educate yourself as well about crime in the area. Check the crime section in your local newspaper to see if your neighborhood has been hit recently. And always keep an eye out for suspicious activity in neighborhood.
  5. Install large, reflective numbers on your house and mailbox. This makes it easier for police to identify your home in the event of an emergency.
  6. Lock it Up- Lot of people is leaving their houses without locking the doors and windows properly. Double-check weaker doors such as patio and sliding ones to make sure their locks are strong enough to withstand kicks.
