  Safety Sense - Burglars Be Gone

 Safety Sense – Burglars Be Gone

                                                                                                        
Every 10 seconds or so, a burglar breaks into someone’s home or apartment. Statistics show it takes the average burglar as little as five minute to get in and out.
Here are some ways to make your home less appealing to burglars.
 
KEEP YOUR GARAGE DOOR LOCKED.
That is where many burglars get into your home. Often, we worry about locking all the other exterior doors, and burglars know that. So they head to the garage first.
 
KNOW THE SURPRISING TIME.
Most home burglaries occur between 3 and 6 p.m. These burglars are usually older teenagers who strike after school, so make sure you lock your doors and windows during the day too.
 
AVOID THE SAFETY PRECAUTION THAT CAN INVITE BURGLARS.
Large bushes and trees in front of your windows are an open invitation. You may think that you are making it harder for burglars to get into your house, but it just gives them privacy from neighbours while they break in. Instead, plant thorny, short, or slim bushes like cactus or pyracantha.
 
KNOW THE BIGGEST MISTAKE PEOPLE MAKE.
Lock your door when you go to a neighbour’s house. Heading down the street for five minutes gives burglars all the time they need.
 
INSTALL LIGHTS WITH MOTION SENSORS.
These lights usually cost under $50 and can reduce your risk of burglary by more than half. Burglars don't want a spotlight, so the minute that light comes on, they’ll change their mind and go somewhere else.
 
KNOW WHERE NOT TO KEEP YOUR VALUABLES.
Burglars often hit just two rooms: the master bedroom for jewellery boxes and valuables, and the living room for the big stuff. Consider stashing valuables in the linen closet or family room desk. Most thieves won’t make time to look there.
