Perfect alarm! More Helpful Tips To Prevent Burglaries *Many people have alarm systems but do not arm them because it is inconvenient. Many burglars know this and will not be deterred by a window sticker, sign or even dummy systems indicating that the home has an alarm system. *Never leave keys under doormats, in flowerpots, in mailboxes or other “Secret Places”. *Keep a detailed inventory of your valuable possessions, including a description of the items, dates of purchase and original value, and serial numbers. Keep a copy in a safe place, away from home. This is a good precaution in case of other disasters. *Make a photographic or video record of all valuable objects, heirlooms, and antiques. Your insurance company can provide assistance in making and keeping your inventory. *Be a good neighbour. If you notice anything suspicious in your neighbourhood, call police immediately. *Form a Neighbourhood Watch Group to improve security and reduce risk of burglary.

*Write down any license plate numbers that may be suspicious, or even take a picture with your mobile. *Note the descriptions of any suspicious persons.
