Crime Prevention Tips
A home invasion is when robbers force their way into an occupied home, apartment or hotel room to commit a robbery or other crimes. Home invasion is like the residential form of an automobile carjacking and it’s on the rise.

The home invader will sometimes target the resident as well as the dwelling. The selection process may include a woman living alone, a wealthy senior citizen or a known drug dealer. The greatest violence usually occurs during the initial sixty seconds of the confrontation and home invaders often come prepared with handcuffs, rope, duct tape, and firearms.

The same tactics used to prevent daytime burglaries will go a long way to preventing forced entry home robberies.

Remember these important security steps:

  • Install solid core doors, heavy duty locks, and window security devices
  • Lock all doors, windows, and garages at all times
  • Use the door peephole BEFORE opening the door
  • Use your porch light to help you to see clearly outside
  • Never rely on a chain-latch as a barrier to partially open the door
  • Never open the door to strangers or solicitors
  • Hold a family meeting to discuss home security plans.
