KEEPING YOUR
HOME SECURE
BURGLARY FACTS
How to prevent burglars from threatening
your safety and stealing your property
Every year,
2 MILLION
home burglaries
are reported
in the U.S.
Nonprofessionals commit
85 PERCENTof break-ins
— intruders who are
much more dangerous
than a career thief.
The police clear only
13 PERCENT
of burglaries, due to
lack of evidence
and witnesses.
1. INSTALL AN ALARM SYSTEM AND KEEP IT ARMED
THE BEST SYSTEMS HAVE —
• Motion detectors
• Glass break detectors
• Multiple interior zones
• Panic buttons
• Loud sirens
• Fake security cameras
• Security system signs
outside the front and
back doors
• Expandable options
2. PLAN FOR BEING OUT OF TOWN
• Stop newspaper
deliveries
• Don’t leave empty trash
bins at the curb
• Don’t have packages
delivered to your door
• Arrange for snow
removal (winter)
• Arrange for lawn
mowing (summer)
• Stop mail service
• Leave radios and TVs
on (or on timers)
• Use a timer to turn
interior and exterior
lights on and off
• Don’t post your
vacation plans and
activities on social
media
4. HAVE BURGLAR-BEATING WINDOWS
• Keep windows locked
• Add a secondary lock
• Don’t leave windows
open on the ground floor
3. HAVE BURGLAR-BEATING DOORS
• Heavy-duty deadbolt
• Solid core or metal
doors for added
strength
• Heavy-duty strike plate
• Wide angle peephole
• Change locks when
you move in
• For sliding doors, leave
a wooden rod in the
door track
5. HAVE A BURGLAR-BEATING GARAGE DOOR
• Use remote openers
that have a rolling code
• Change the access
code periodically
• Replace worn keypads
that give away the
access numbers
7. THREE OTHER WAYS TO BEAT BACK BURGLARS
• Get a dog! It’s true:
Burglars hate them
• Team with neighbors to
be on the lookout for
each other
• Be wary of door-to-door
solicitors and strangers
around your property
dressed as workmen —
they could be burglars
6. KEEP IT SAFE — INSIDE AND OUT
• Store valuable items
and documents in a
high-quality, bolted-
down safe
• Password-protect
computers, tablets
and cell phones
• Keep curtains drawn to
prevent thieves from
casing your house
• Use locking window
well covers
• Keep the exterior well
lit at night
• Use locking pet doors
• Don’t leave computer
boxes or other
packaging for valuable
items by the curb for
garbage pickup
• Make your address
visible so police,
firemen and paramedics
can find you quickly
• Don’t leave spare keys
by the doors or in
other obvious places
ENTER
(According to the FBI)
