Home Burglary Prevention Tips from your Phoenix Police Officers

Let’s talk Burglary Prevention
It happens…you leave for the day only to return and find someone has been inside or on your property without your permission. You call the police and a report is completed. What do you do now? Is there something I could have done that would have prevented this??

Let’s answer these questions and get to work…
First, there is a lot you can do to prevent this from happening again. Second, with knowledge you can implement simple safeguards that will Detect, Deter and Delay a burglar.
Let’s get started…

Patrol your neighborhood – be the eyes and ears of the police department
o Report suspicious activity – you know what is ‘normal’ for your neighborhood
o Crime Stop 602-262-6151 (non-emergency) or 911 (EMERGENCY)
Landscaping –
o Get rid of hiding places by trimming trees up and shrubs down to below window level
o You can also plant thorny plants near fences or areas difficult to secure.
Lighting – bad guys don’t want to be seen
o Inside lighting gives the appearance someone is home
o Timers are a good investment
o Use outside light throughout the night
o Use steady lights at front and rear entrances and address
o Photocell attachments allow dusk to dawn lighting
o Motion sensors set close to the house can also be a benefit
Locks –
o Doors – should be solid core with 180 degree peephole with 180 degree peephole
o Sliding doors/windows – use anti-slide bolt, anti-slide pin and anti-lift device
Garage doors –
o Keep closed when not in use
o Watch doors close as you leave
o Lock door from garage to house
o Unplug opener or lock from inside when on vacation
Gates –
o Repair or replace weak/broken gates
o Use strong hasps and padlocks – KEEP LOCKED
These are just a few suggestions to empower our community members and keep the bad guys away…

Vacation Safety Tips for your Home

Going on Vacation??

Some Tips to keep your home safe while you are away…

An empty house is a tempting target for a burglar. Use these tips to help safeguard your home while you are on vacation.
• Have good locks on all doors and windows, and use them!
• Ask a neighbor to watch the house while you’re away. It’s a good idea to leave your vacation address and telephone number with a neighbor so you can be reached in case of an emergency.
• Never leave your house keys hidden outside your home.
• Stop all deliveries, or arrange for a neighbor to pick up your mail, newspapers and packages.
• Plug in timers to turn lights and a radio or television on and off at appropriate times. This helps to disguise the fact that you are away.
• Leave your blinds/shades in a normal position. Don’t close them unless that is what you do when you are home.
• Close and lock the garage door. Ask a neighbor to occasionally park their car at your home as you normally would. Vehicles parked outside should be moved occasionally to appear that they are being used.
• Tell your police department you plan to be away. Patrol officers may have the opportunity to periodically check your residence.

Have a great vacation!!
