Here is a good reminder to help prevent crime in our homes. Please take a moment to read and hopfully stop any burglers from entering your home. Have a great weekend.
Crime prevention is defined as the anticipation, recognition and assessment of crime risk and the initiation of some sort of action to remove or reduce it.
You can have a significant effect upon the security of your residence by taking a few moments to assess its weaknesses and a few more moments to take simple actions (many of which cost nothing but your time or a bit of physical energy) to remove or strengthen the weaknesses.
General Good Practice
Experience has proven three basic concepts repeatedly.
1. Just the appearance that a resident is present and is looking after the property is, in itself, a warning to most potential criminals.
2. The actual security equipment is totally useless unless it is actually used and used correctly.
3. The element in any security system that is most likely to fail is the human one.
4. Keep your home neat and clean, in good repair and looking like it is being occupied is an important step toward thwarting crime. Be a good neighbor and get to know your neighbors. Call the police when you notice something that seems suspicious.
Assessing your home’s susceptibility is critical when trying to “think like a thief”! Consider how a criminal might see your home and remove as many of the opportunities or weak points as you can and always keep valuables in a different and secure location.
