Essential Tips For A Safer Home
You should not be shy. Be friendly with people that live in the neighborhood. Watch their homes and ask them if they'll watch yours as well. It does not necessarily pay to steer clear of gossip. Important security details (like the presence of strangers in your neighborhood) can come out of the most innocent conversations.
If you will be gone for an extended period, turn the ringers off on all telephones in the home. Intruders might be attracted by a phone that rings constantly without anyone picking up.
