Helpful hint: Burglary is a crime of opportunity. Burglars aim for the easiest targets. Most will give up if they can’t get in within a few minutes. To keep burglars away from your home or vehicle, make their work difficult, risky and low profit. Take all items of value with you when leaving it unattended. If this is not an option please secure the items in the trunk or out of view. Please remember to lock all doors and windows when leaving your home or vehicle. The best defense from these types of crimes is to not give the would be suspect a chance at all.
