  • Always close your garage door even when you are at home
  • Secure your vehicle in well-lit areas
  • Remove valuables from your vehicle and do not leave them in plain sight
  • Consider installing a motion alarm on your vehicle and a dash cam that records when the vehicle is not in use
  • Also consider installing a fence at the front of your property to prevent access to the house
  • Remember to store your keys out of reach and sight of opportunistic offenders
  • The exterior doors of your home should be strong and equipped with quality locks
  • Install security screens on all glass doors and windows
  • Install an intruder alarm that not only covers movement, but also the opening or sliding of windows and doors.
