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
