Released by the Columbus Division of Police and the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, the video below contains interviews from three convicted burglars who volunteered their tips on helping homeowners secure and protect their homes and properties.
Here are some of the key tips offered by the convicts:
Keep Valuables Away From Windows And Out Of View In Your Cars.
“If they can see it then he’s going in there.”
Always Keep Your Garage Door Closed When You’re Not In Position For Observation.
“We’d just sit back and wait for them to leave.”
Get A Good Security Alarm System Setup, Check Your Locks And Set Your Alarm.
“If you know you’re not going to be home a lot, get a security system. Don’t just buy it and never set it. If I hear it, I know there’s an alarm.”
