Be sure you always lock every door even main doors from the garage should be locked if possible. Also another good investment is window locks which are proven to deter criminals that might be afraid to break glass for fear of being heard.
Never leave your garage door open. 87% of home invasions happen through an open garage door, you should make it a habit to close the garage door from inside your vehicle once you pull in or immediately close it after entering home. Also be sure to watch the door close completely to ensure a would be criminal waiting does not hop inside while it is closing. Even if you’re away for just a short time. Most burglaries are “smash and grab” and only last a few minutes. Thieves will take whatever they can easily carry out the door. And remember to store valuables out of sight.
Pay attention to your neighbors. If you see unusual cars coming and going several times a day or if you small strange odors or just simply see something odd you should report it right away to security or the police for investigation.
Your should always know what is around you whenever possible. It is very smart to look out your window to check for lurking vehicles or people that seem to be hanging around before you exit your home to go to your cat or out for a walk
When leaving your home to walk you should carry a walking stick and if possible pepper spray for two reasons. One, to thwart human attackers and, two, to protect yourself from dogs or other animals that may be loose in your neighborhood that might attack you or your child. You should always carry your cell phone for emergencies.

Don’t stop mail or newspaper deliveries. Ask your neighbor or a family member to pick up both.

If there is a car normally in the driveway, leave one there. If you normally have it in garage, then no worries but try to maintain the aura that someone is home.
Try to ensure that any landscaping is maintained and looks freshly groomed. Residential thieves will look for places with plenty of weeds, overgrown grass or overgrown plants.
Be sure that windows are clear of shrubbery, bushes or any growth that blocks the visibility of seeing the window from street or sidewalk. Its fine to close blinds but if you can’t see out of the window due to shrubbery, etc. then that window can’t be seen from the outside. Thieves can hide behind that shrubbery and break in.
An alarm is a good investment but it is a deterrent so understand that thieves know they have 45 seconds to a minute after they break in before the alarm goes off typically. Then, its roughly 5 to 10 minutes before a police response if any would occur. More often than not, there is guard service responding to alarms which could also take similar time, if in fact such a service was being provided. Thieves know the time element and work within it. So don’t hide the jewelry in your bottom dresser drawer and don’t hide cash in your shoes. They will pull down books quickly and yank out drawers to see if anything is behind or under. So leave a box of costume (fake) jewelry on your dresser top.
