As we have been having warmer weather, while we are out driving through our neighborhoods, we are seeing a lot of folks with open garage doors, but no one is around. It could be that you may be working out in the backyard, but your valuables are left unattended. This gives prime opportunity to our criminals who are out lurking around looking for that moment that they can enter your garage, your vehicle, or even your home and take your valuables. If you are going to be working outside, but not in sight of your garage, please take what you need out and bring it into the backyard with you and close that garage door!

Secondarily, don’t leave your garage door cracked open, even if it is a few inches. Criminals can shimmy underneath and gain entry into your car inside, items in your garage and even your home. Even animals can come in. Garages don’t need to be vented. We understand that it may be hot and this is done for comfort, but think again when leaving anything open on your home that could lead to a burglary.
