No Burglaries

How hard is your target? Like me you probably have responded a zillion residential burglaries and you see all the different things that people fail to do that get them victimized. Sliding glass doors left open. Burglar alarms left turned off. Porch light bulbs turned off or burned out.

Check out your own home. Trim the bushes away from the windows. Cut the tree branch away from the second story window. Make sure there is good lighting all the way around the house at night. Install and use a good residential burglar alarm. Have a dead bolt lock on every exterior door. Lock your house when you are not home.

Have a good dog, even a little one that will bark when someone approaches the home will do the job. Keep the clutter out of the yard so that the house is visible from the street. Keep the mail and newspapers from piling up so the house seems occupied. Good residential burglary prevention begins at home; that's what the SGT Says.

That works when you are at home. Not when you are at work and the MRS takes the K9 buddy to the vet for a checkup.

Luckily for us, the bad guys know better than to burg our houses...think "Wrath of God"

Well, there is that factor!
