Home Security Tips
  • Always lock your windows and doors when you go out, even if for only a few minutes.
  • If you return home and find your pedestrian door that leads into your home locked, and you are certain that you left it unlocked, DO NOT GO INSIDE! 
  • Call 9-1-1 ~ Burglars often lock this door to slow down a victim, allowing the burglar extra time to get out of the home before the resident enters.
  • If your home is equipped with an alarm, always activate it even if you’re only going out for a short walk.
    • Consider adding a motion sensor in your master bedroom/bathroom, which will activate the alarm if someone comes in through a glass window or door without opening it.
  • Always keep your front and rear porch lights on from dusk to dawn and use motion detector lighting along the sides of your home or areas with little foot traffic.
  • Use timers on indoor lamps to give the appearance that you are home.
  • Adjust window coverings for optimal privacy while maintaining good visibility outside.
  • If your garage door has a remote shutoff button on the wall-mounted control, located in the garage, consider locking the door nightly. This will prevent your garage door from being opened remotely.
  • If you have a safe, make sure that it is properly bolted to concrete so that it cannot be easily removed.
  • Always close and lock your safe and never leave a key or combination out or in an easy to find location (i.e. office, nightstand, etc).
  • When you leave on vacation, remember to call the Police Department for a “Vacation Check” 949-644-3681 or sign-up online at Also, ask a trusted friend or neighbor to pick up your newspaper and mail while you are away.
