DON’T LEAVE LOCKING TO SOMEONE ELSE
MOST burglaries are opportunistic. You can protect your home from the inside. Keep all doors and windows closed and locked at all times. If you like to leave a window open, make sure it’s only enough to allow a breeze and use a locking device to secure it. An open exterior window or door is an invitation for burglars to easily enter your home, so keep them shut and securely locked whether you're home or not. Don't underestimate strong window locks and update them if needed. - Sergeant Warren Ameduri WEMBLEY
