Helping to Reduce Your Risk of Home Burglary

Burglary may be common in Nevada (as in the rest of the U.S.), but you as a typical Nevada resident can take simple, common sense measures to help reduce your risk.

The main thing you as a Nevadan must do to help prevent burglary is to limit access vulnerability as much as possible. Easy access is what burglars look for most when casing a street or neighborhood. Here are some tips:

  • Make it a family policy to lock up every time you leave. Have deadbolts on all exterior doors and make sure all windows are locked.
  • When you go out of town, use light timers to make it look like someone is at home. Have a trusted person collect your mail and any newspapers that might accumulate. Stuffed mail and paper boxes easily tip burglars off that you're not home.
  • Store bicycles, tools, barbecue grills, and yard equipment in your garage or in some other structure that you can lock. If air conditioner theft is a problem in your area (due to high scrap metal prices), install a locking cage over yours.
  • Consider the benefits of installing a monitored home security system.
