The Greenville Police Department wants to remind you that although Christmas is over, this is the time of year that burglars are on the move in neighborhoods searching for anything of value.
They would like you to remind you of 5 ways to help protect your home from thieves:
*Home security system – Deter thieves with noise or an automatic call to the police.
*Proper outside lighting – Thieves may choose to bypass a well-lit home.
*Strong exterior doors – Solid wood or metal provides stronger protection against break-ins; even fire-safe security bars are ideal.
*Always secure windows or add a motion sensor if needed.
*Locks for pet doors – Make sure your pet door isn’t a point of entry for a thief.
