20 Things You Can Do To Prevent Theft
DAYTON -- Dayton Police Detective Danielle P. Cash provided crime prevention tips in response to a recent increase in thefts from vehicles.
Cash says property crime always increases with warmer weather.
Auto Theft Protection
When not inside your vehicle, turn it off, lock the doors and windows, and take your keys with you.
Park in well lit high traffic areas.
Use parking lots that have attendants.
If you park inside a garage, make sure all doors to the garage are locked and keep your car locked inside.
Consider a remote start system to use during the winter months to warm your vehicle instead of leaving it running and unattended.
Burglary / B&E Protection
Always lock all your doors and windows when you leave your residence.
Install solid core doors with metal door frames. Equip them with 1 inch dead bolt locks and wide angle 180 degree peepholes.
Consider a home security system.
Install motion sensory security lighting outside the home and garage.
Keep all shrubbery and trees trimmed back to avoid obscuring view of entry points and to limit access to roofs.
Never hide your keys outside your residence. A determined thief will find it, no matter how well hidden. Keep in mind, some thieves may be watching.
If youre gone an extended amount of time, stop mail delivery and notify police and a trusted neighbor to check your property.
Know your neighbors and report any suspicious activity.
Use timers for lights and appliances in the house to give an occupied look.
Make sure your address is visible from the street for police and fire personnel.
Theft From Auto Protection
Never leave any visible property in your vehicle. Even pocket change is enticing to some thieves.
If you must have valuables inside your vehicle, place them in your trunk before you park. Remember some thieves may be watching.
If your stereo has a removable face, take it off and take it with you.
Park in well lit high traffic areas
Scan the area for suspicious persons prior to parking.
Clean the circular mark from the GPS dock off your windshield and take GPS with you.
Consider a car alarm and other anti theft devices
Remove garage openers from your vehicle when parked outside your garage.
Cash suggests Dayton residents set up an account on ReportIt from leadsonline.com and record serial numbers, photos, and descriptions of your property for free! In the event of a tragedy such as a theft or fire, you can print it out and give it to your insurance agency and reporting officer.
