Going to be out of town for a few days on vacation or business? Make sure you read this checklist on burglary prevention before you leave.

Most people believe that burglary happens only to others, but it can happen to you. Home burglary is an inevitable fact of life for residents of inner cities and suburban communities alike. Drive down any street after dark, and ask yourself which homes would most likely be targeted by burglars. Police Department statistics show that burglary and theft occurs most often in an unoccupied house; burglars want to steal things without having to deal with a witness.

The senior citizen population is the fastest growing population in the country. Surveys show that persons over age 65 are victims of crime far less frequently than younger people. But many senior citizens are so afraid of crime that they shut themselves up in their homes and rarely go out. Isolating ourselves behind locked doors only makes it easier for criminals to work in the neighborhood. You can reduce opportunities for criminals to strike by being alert and careful, and by following these tips.
