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!!
