Vehicle theft and car prowling prevention tips

 ·         Report any suspicious activity or behaviour, such as someone trying door handles on parked vehicles.

·         Garage openers should not be left in vehicles or should be disengaged, as thieves can use them to gain entry into a home.

·         Avoid parking in unlit areas at night.

·         Lock your doors and close all windows at all times, even while you are in your yard.

·         Hide your valuables out of sight, or better yet, take them with you.

·         Don’t keep extra keys in your vehicle.

 

 

Home and garage break-in prevention tips.

 ·         Report any suspicious vehicles, activity or behaviour, such as someone showing up at your home “mistakenly” looking for a different address, or going through yards of neighbours who you believe are away.

·         Remind your family to close the garage door(s) after removing bikes, vehicles and other items. Any open door is an invitation.

·         Despite the warm weather, it is important to ensure windows and doors are secured at all times, even when you’re home. Culprits need mere moments to commit a theft.

·         If you are away, ensure a friend or neighbour picks up your mail and flyers and keeps your yard appearing cared for, giving the impression that you’re around.

·         Use timers to control lighting within the home.

·         Install exterior motion lights to brighten dark areas around doors or windows to make them easily seen by a neighbour or passersby.

·         Lock all garage doors, including the one between an attached garage and the house.

·         Always close and lock any windows that could be used to gain access to your home while you’re away or sleeping, even on hot summer nights.

·         Store important or irreplaceable documents and items away from your home, such as in a safety deposit box. If you see homes with open doors, front doors with keys left in the locks, or a neighbour’s car with the trunk left open, give them a quick call to let them know.

·         Consider installing home and vehicle alarm systems and vehicle anti-theft devices.
