Remember to lock your doors and windows, don’t leave packages or valuables in plain view, and be aware of your surroundings. Be a good neighbor and report suspicious behavior. If you have packages delivered to your business or residence, be sure somebody is available to receive them. Any type of package left unattended or visible, is a very tempting treat for a would-be thief.
