Advisory: Burglary Prevention Basics
Hi Bel-Air Association,

-Make your home look occupied and make difficult to break in.

-Lock all outside doors and windows before you leave the house or go to bed. Even if it’s a short time, lock your doors.

-Keep your garage door closed and locked.

-Don't allow daily deliveries of mail, newspapers or flyers to build up while you’re away. Arrange for your post office to hold your mail, or arrange for a friend or neighbor to take them in regularly.

-Change locks immediately if your keys are lost or stolen.

-Have adequate exterior lighting. A motion-sensitive light is recommended for backyards.

-Trim trees and shrubs

-Make sure your door hinges are on the inside.

_Activate your alarm system if have one.

_Doggie doors should have a locking mechanism.

_The most important thing you can do is CALL the POLICE to report a crime or suspicious activity
