Many home burglaries are “crimes of opportunity” where burglars choose easy targets such as doors that are unlocked or windows that are left open.

The following five easy steps will lower the chance of a burglar breaking and entering your house, according to sjpd.org.

  1. Make your home look occupied and hard to break into.

  2. Lock all outside doors and windows before you leave the house or go to bed.

  3. Keep lights on when you leave the house.

  4. Keep all gates and garage doors closed and locked.

  5. Don’t allow daily deliveries of mail, newspapers or flyers build up while you are away.
