With everything else that is going on in your life, you might not be thinking much about preventing home burglary.  Who even wants to 19084304think about the subject!

But you don’t have to get pre-occupied about it in order to do a few common and not as common things to help keep your home safer.

In addition to the basics like locked doors and windows, and even alarm systems, here are a few pretty easy things you can do, focused on not letting you unwittingly making your home a theft target.  The video is brief and worth your time.  These items are mentioned:

  • Have neighbor pick up mail and newspapers every day
  • In winter, have neighbor drive on your driveway when it snows
  • Don’t share vacation plans on social media sites
  • If you don’t have a safe, moving valuables to a child’s room
