  • Do not put your name on the outside of your residence or mailbox.
  • Don't hide keys outside your house.
  • Don't leave notes on doors.
  • Have an unlisted home telephone number (limits accessibility to home address).
  • Have good outside lighting.
  • Install 1-way peepholes in doors.
  • Keep the house locked, even if you are at home.
  • Leave radio on (best with a timer).
  • Lock all entrances at night, including the garage.
  • Notify the police or a trusted neighbor of your absence.
