At Home
o Make sure all doors and windows have secondary locks (window pins, deadbolts etc) and use them!
o Don’t hide spare keys in mailboxes or planters, or under doormats.
o Place gifts where they can’t be seen from the outside.

o Mail cards, checks or gift certificates from the Post Office or at a blue U.S. Postal Service box.
o Close and lock garage door.
o Lock your vehicle and remove all the valuables. Yes, even in your driveway.
Strangers at your Door
o Use caution anytime there is a stranger at your door.
o Be suspicious of unexpected sales calls or deliveries. Ask for identification.
o Be aware of scams that criminals commit to take advantage of people’s generosity during the holidays.
o Investigate charities before making donations. Ask how the funds will be used.
Leaving for the Holidays
o Ask a trusted friend, neighbor or Neighborhood Watch member to watch your home.
o Use timers for lights and radios while you’re away.
