Do Not Trust Your Security with Strangers

Do not trust your house keys with neighbors unless they are trustworthy. Even long time neighbors can take advantage of a vacation if you are not well acquainted with them. Only trust your house keys with people you know you can trust.

Protect Your Valuables from the Start

If you make an expensive purchase do not leave the boxes by the curb for the trash as usual. This can serve as a sign to thieves that you have what they want in your home. Be sure to break down all boxes and trash and put them into trash bags for security.

 Protect Your Home on Vacation

Be sure that your home is not left unattended while you are on vacation. Have a friend pick up mail and turn on lights on different days while you are away. Thieves watch to pick a target so the best security is to make sure nothing seems to advertise the fact that you are away from home on vacation. Be careful not to let people know on social media that you are away from home. This can be an invitation to rob your home while you are gone especially if you are on a public server and using social media. Thieves watch for these opportunities so beware.

Invest in a Safe
