How secure is your home? If youíre locked out of your home, can you still get in? Possibly through an unlocked window in the back, or by using an extra key hidden under a flowerpot on the front porch. If you can break into your home, so can a burglar! A small investment of time and money can make your home more secure. The Newport Beach Police Department offers free home security inspections to any resident of Newport Beach. A representative of the police department will review your current means of security and offer suggestions on how to improve the security of your home. They will also review the exterior of your home and discuss possible improvements to your lighting and landscaping that could reduce your chances of becoming a victim of this costly crime.
After you have installed all the proper locks on your doors and windows, donít forget to use them! Did you know in almost fifty percent of all residential burglaries, thieves enter through an unlocked door or window? This means that you can significantly reduce your chances of becoming a victim by simply locking your doors and windows. While this wonít prevent all burglaries from occurring, it certainly will deter the opportunistic burglar from making your home his next target.
