Simple Vacation Crime Prevention Tips To Protect Your Home
- Don't announce your vacation plans though social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). Wait until you return to share your trip.
- Use timers on interior and exterior lights.
- Stop mail and newspaper deliveries or have a trusted friend or neighbor collect them. Uncollected mail and newspapers can be a clue that a home is unoccupied.
