Some quick home security tips: Have the exterior of your residence well lit, burglars like to use the cover of darkness. Trim the bushes and plants in front of your windows so that you can see out your windows.(Burglars also like to use overgrown bushes near windows to enter windows undetected.) Trim trees in your front yard so that you can have a clean line of sight to the street, and so that your neighbors can see and report any suspicious activity happening around your home. Reinforce door frames so that doors can not be easily kicked in. Be a good neighbor and call the Police if you see anything suspicious in your neighborhood.
