Securing your home during holiday travels

Local News

The holiday season is the time of year that a lot of people like to travel and it’s also the time of year that people are buying gifts for their families.

With less time spent at home it leaves an opportunity for thieves to stop by.

To make your home seem unappealing to thieves you want to make it seem like someone is home at all times even if no one is.

One way you can do that is by installing timers for your lights. If you do go on vacation, you also need to make sure your mail won’t pile up so pause your mail service.

And if you’re having packages delivered either bring them inside or arrange a special location for them to be dropped off so they aren’t easily seen.

You can contact your local law enforcement officer for a patrol request meaning they’ll make sure everything is in order for you.

Make sure you don’t put that you’re leaving your home on social media.
