Tip of the Week: Preventing Preventable Crimes
So many crimes are actually preventable when people take the time to secure high value items. Additionally, when thieves notice a pattern of relaxed security in an area, they are sure to return as well as spreading the word to other criminals. Here are some simple tips to protect your property and keep crime out of your area.
1.Never leave high value items, purses, wallets, etc. in unsecured lockers or cubby holes when at the gym or other sporting type places.
2.Never leave high value items, purses, wallets, etc. in your vehicle, whether secured or not, in plain view. If you cannot carry the items with you, secure them in your trunk and out of view. If you have a sunshade for your windshield, consider using it even at night and in parking garages to make it more difficult to see inside your vehicle.
3.Never leave high value items, purses, wallets, etc. in plain view in your home if you are going to be away, even for a short time. Try to leave things like laptop computers, jewelry, purses, etc. in a closet where they cannot be seen from outside the home and consider closing blinds and curtains when leaving your home.
