Lock Up! Turn on that Alarm!

Remember to lock up and turn on your alarm system!    Recently we have seen a jump in residential burglaries.  Often times the burglars are entering through unlocked doors.   In some cases they are forcing entry through doors or windows and the alarm system was not turned on.  Fortunately, in one case a window was forced, but the alarm deterred the suspect and he fled the area.   
If you leave the house for a few minutes, lock the doors and turn on your alarm.   Make sure your locks are in good working order and secure the doors properly.  Make sure sliding doors cannot be lifted off their track. 
If you have anyone come to your door that seems suspicious, or someone in the neighborhood that doesn't fit call us right away.  Too often we get calls about suspicious activity several days after the fact.   Timely reporting is very important. You can reach us 24 hours a day at 858-756-4372
