The summer months have arrived, the kids are out of school, and the busy travel season has begun. While preparing for that long-awaited out of town vacation, it is important to protect your home and your valuables while you are away for an extended period of time. The following safety tips will help ensure your home does not become a target for a residential burglary:
Leave a light on inside and outside of your home.
Remember to activate the security alarm if you have one.
Lock all of your exterior doors.
Do not leave a garage door opener inside of a vehicle left in your driveway.
Contact the post office to hold your mail so your mailbox does not appear to be overflowing with mail or have a neighbor collect your mail while you are away.
Contact the newspaper company to hold your newspapers so they do not stack up in your driveway.
Ask a neighbor you trust to keep an eye on your home.
Contact the Jupiter Police Department to set up an extra patrol watch for your home and neighborhood.
The Jupiter Police Department wants you to feel confident that your home is protected while you enjoy your summer vacation with family and friends.
