☐Are your exterior doors made of solid wood or metal?
☐Have the locks been changed since you moved in?
☐Are windows kept locked at all times?
☐Are lights installed around the perimeter of the home?
☐Are electrical switch boxes locked to prevent a thief from cutting your power?
☐Are your side gates kept locked when not in use?
☐Do you keep a set of spare keys with a trusted neighbor to avoid hiding keys around the outside of your home?
☐When you go out of town for extended periods of time, do you set light timers to make it look like your home is occupied?
☐When going on vacation do you arrange a mail stop or ask a family member or friend to collect your mail?
