You can take an active role in making your home less likely to be targeted by thieves. Follow these tips to secure your home and help us prevent crime.

Install a good deadbolt lock

Chain locks are an inadequate security measure. Instead install a wide angle peep-hole so you do not have to open the door to see the person. If you have children consider including a second peep-hole at a child’s height

All hinges should be accessible from the interior of the home only

Ensure your door is equipped with non-removable hinge pins

Most doors are installed with screws less than 1″ in length. This results in a door that appears secure but is relatively weak and prone to being kicked in. Door kick break-ins are common, so door screws should be at least 2 ½ to 3 ½ inches long

Lock your garage at all times

Keep a record of serial numbers and descriptions of your household possessions
