Make sure your home doesn’t attract burglars!!
Create an illusion that you are home even when you are not!
– Use automatic times on lights, radio and televisions (turn up the volume)
– Have your phone calls forwarded
– Have the Post Office hold your mail if you will be away
– Mow grass or remove snow
– Keep garbage emptied and cans neat
– Have a trusted neighbor keep an eye on your home
– Do not pull shades all the way down or blinds all the way closed
If you go on vacation complete a “Vacant Home Check Form” with the Emerson Police Department!!
