  • Do not publicize the fact that you are going on vacation.
  • Put lights and a radio on timers.
  • Burn an outside light all night, not just when you go away.
  • Do not close your blinds and curtains if you do not normally do so while you are home.
  • Do not stop deliveries!  Have a neighbor pick them up for you, as well
    as circulars that accumulate by the front door.
  • Make arrangements to have the lawn cut while you are away.
  • Turn your telephone ringer down to low or turn on the answering machine.  Do not leave
    messages saying that you are on vacation or when you will return home.
  • Lock all doors (including garage doors), windows and screens before leaving.
  • Store items such as lawn furniture, garden tools and hanging baskets in a secure area of your residence.
  • Ask neighbors to look out for your residence while you are away.
  • Consider asking a neighbor to park a vehicle in your driveway during your absence.
  • Leave a phone number with a neighbor where you can be contacted in case of an emergency.
  • Call the Police Department to request a zone check of your residence while you are away.
  •  If you do not have a neighbor that can pick up your mail and newspapers have them
    stopped during the time that you are away.
