SAFETY TIP: Barriers to Burglary
Burglary is a crime of opportunity. Make their work risky and difficult, and you stand a good chance of stopping them before they get in.
Your first line of defense
To a burglar visibility means vulnerability. They hide behind fences and shrubbery. The key is to keep trespassers out while keeping your property visible. Use picket or chainlink fences Keep hedges clipped down around waist level. Burglars try the doors and windows first. If burglars have difficulty here, chances are they will move on to another property.
