Friday's Crime Prevention Tips - Homes Adjacent to Bike Paths and Paseos
Fridays Crime Prevention Tip - RE: Homes adjacent to bike paths, paseos and riverbeds.
It's no surprise that most home burglaries point of entry is from the back yard. Having a home adjacent to a bike path, paseo or a wash, makes it much easier for a criminal to enter a property without being seen. A few simple steps can be taken to help decrease the chance of becoming a victim.
Increase the height of the back fence if possible
Add landscape such as roses or bougainvilleas to prevent access
A large dog is always the great deterrent
Add a motion spotlight - recording device to the rear of the property
These are just a few recommendations. For a more complete analysis of your home, The Heroes Team will provide a free comprehensive property report OR join our newsletter for more weekly crime prevention tips from our web page.
