We have seen an increase in burglaries over the past year. In most of our cases, the suspects have easy access to the houses- through unlocked doors. To make it worse, the alarms are not being turned on.
Don't be a victim- Lock up the house- even if you leave for 5 minutes. Turn on your alarm system. Don't leave valuables out- lock them up!! Put the jewelry in the safe. We have found that it takes just seconds for these crooks to accomplish the burglary. Make sure your door locks work- test them. Open windows are not a good idea, just a push with your hand and the screen pops out.
It is a good idea to have serial numbers and descriptions of your electronics, cameras and other items kept in a safe place. The Sheriff offers a free home crime prevention inspection. Call them if you are interested (760) 966-3500. If you have any questions, please give us a call.
