Security Tips

  • Install a good deadbolt lock
  • If you have children consider including a second peep-hole at a child’s height
  • All hinges should be accessible from the interior of the home only
  • Ensure your door is equipped with non-removable hinge pins
  • Most doors are installed with screws less than 1″ in length
  • Sliding doors and windows can be “lifted” out of the tracks with relative ease. Installing screws or a blocking device above the sliding door or window will help to prevent it from being lifted off the tracks
  • Install a snug piece of wood in the track of sliding patio doors
  • Install a pin into the frame of a sliding window to prevent it from being pushed open
  • Glass within 40 inches of a door lock can be broken and a criminal can reach inside to unlock the door

If a crime has occurred…

  • DO NOT enter your home – the criminal may still be inside
  • Use a neighbours phone to call the police
  • TRY NOT to touch anything or clean up until the police have inspected for evidence
  • Note the licence plate and descriptors of any suspicious vehicle(s) or person(s) and the direction of travel, if known
