The mail and paper keeps someone coming by your house every day, preferably at different times to keep an eye on the place
Makes sense, I think at my house I don't want the truck on display with a light on all the time tho busy road.

uno mas-didn't see this one up there, unless im blind.

....used to be a fuck up when I was a tad younger. People don't believe me when I say this to them...

Lock your fucking cars. No matter where you are and don't leave valuables in them. You'd be surprised how many people think their car won't just get opened and ran through....seriously! You don't need to be a professional thief to open an unlocked car and walk away with 800 cash, or someones unopened xmas present. Even in the nicest of neighborhoods.

Under Burglary Prevention, is there a reason you didn't recommend getting a dog whenever possible? I'm a LEO myself and have two dogs. They don't make good guard dogs but as watch dogs they are very good. They are inside dogs but they bark at most movements outside. They are also very alert when we go hiking. They've alerted me to coyotes and other hikers approaching from the rear.

Re #4 about closing the garage door - when you close the garage door, always lock the door leading into the garage.

I used to do work in rich neighborhoods. One thing I found out fast was that the home owners may be rich but their kids can be a nuisance. Nothing worse than a rich kid who is spoiled, little money who knows daddy will bail them out when they get caught vandalizing.

Before a robbery:

Evidence Collection Equipment (Install Cameras, Smooth surfaces and Height Tape)

Have Policy and Procedures that will help protect you(Closing, Money handling, passive, hiring and firing)


During a robbery:
Assure the Criminal that you will give them what they want
Announce your actions and movements to the robber
Have a plan
Be good witness and be passive
Survive


7 Steps After a robbery:
1. Lock the doors
2. Sound the alarm/911
3. Verify all employees are safe
4. Preserve the crime scene
5. Ask customers to stay
6. Fill out suspect ID sheet
7. Pat yourself on the back-you survived


Reporting a robbery that has occurred:
Give your location
Stay calm
Be specific(where, what, who, give details)
Stay on the phone


Remember that:
You may be telling us something that we are not aware of or you may be giving us the information that we need to investigate and possibly make an arrest. Suspicious Activity is an event taking place out of the ordinary which could lead to a crime or be a crime in progress.


Protective Measures to prevent robbery:
Limit access to work areas
Have alternate staff exits
Know how to report problems
Report threatening and suspicious activity to police
Electronic access control.
Silent alarms.
Metal detectors.
Video cameras.
Have Security Surveys done
Improve Lighting and Visibility



Summary
Have the police became familiar with your facility.
Practice good crime prevention.
Be “law enforcement friendly”.
Utilize local associations to keep abreast of current trends.
I think you forgot if you have a gun....pull the trigger if they are threatening your life

I work in a pretty nice neighborhood with many million dollar homes and I still lock my vehicle EVERY Single time and am aware of my surroundings when walking around because it doesn't matter where you are, thiefs could be close.

Good thread. I'd like to add that most of this is true for the rest of the year as well, just so happens the holidays are when a lot more of this stuff happens.

Stay safe everyone.

I left my truck unlocked. They still busted out my back window to steal my radio.
