Keep Up Appearances
Maintain your property. Criminals are less likely to attempt a break in attempt if your home or business is well kept with it's appearance.
Don't advertise your valuables. Look through your window, do you see lots of items you'd want to steal? Leave a small light on. Leaving a light on makes it look like there's someone up and alert. And last but not least, do not post on social media that you are on vacation. Criminals love to see that you won't be home when they want to stop by for a visit.
Be a good neighbor! If we watch out for one another, we are safer together than isolated by yourself. Suspicious vehicles and people should be recognized and asked about.
