More Crime in Warm Weather

It’s getting hot. According to police, as temperatures rise so does crime. Residents leaving windows and doors open to let in a cool breeze may also be inviting criminals into their homes. Police say be sure to use locks or braces to limit exactly how far doors and windows can be opened to prevent unwanted intruders.

With more people outside enjoying the warm evening air, it may be harder to spot someone who doesn’t belong there. Motion sensor lights will help chase away robbers looking for an easy way in. Enlisting the help of a neighbor to keep a watchful eye can also reduce your chances of becoming a victim.
