PROTECTING YOUR HOME AGAINST BURGLARY

In the last issue of the Summit, I provided you with the first part of a checklist to assess your vulnerability and to reduce your risks. Here is the second part of that checklist. Remember to go through it twice, once during the day and again at night, to see where your security could be improved.

Assessing your home's security is the first step in crime prevention. If you answered “NO” to any of the questions, your home security may have a weak link that a burglar may exploit. Look in next month's Summit for additional security tips. If you would like trained volunteers to assist you in conducting a security evaluation of your home, contact us at the Police Centre at 236-1222 (extension 5814 or 5815). If you would like a trained volunteer to address your group (in English or in French) on home security, personal safety and protection against fraud, contact Louis Tremblay at 722-3699.
