Simple Vacation Crime Prevention Tips To Protect Your Home

  • Don't announce your vacation plans though the social medias (Facebook, Twitter, etc.).  Wait until you return to share your trip.  Social pages on the web can be seen by anyone!
  • Use timers on interior and exterior lights.
  • Have a trusted friend or neighbor collect  mail and newspaper deliveries.  This keeps the mail from piling up which is a clue that a home is unoccupied.
