Home safety tips
• Avoid displaying gifts that may be seen from a window or doorway
• Have packages delivered to a neighbor if unable to be home to receive them
• Packages left on porches or doorsteps are easy bait for thieves and may draw attention
• Keep shrubbery near doors and windows trimmed for better view
• Always lock home doors and windows, even when away for a short time
• Keep a porch light on at night and consider installing a motion detector light
• Update door & window locks
• Lock car doors, close windows, lock merchandise or packages in car trunk
• Don’t leave loose change lying around – thieves are known to break car windows for just a handful of change
• Shop with a friend or ask a store employee to help carry packages to the car
• Have keys in hand when approaching vehicle
• Check the back seat and around car before getting inside
