The Easiest Way To Make Your Home More Secure
By SARAH VULPIO
A home is broken into once every 15 seconds in the United States. A home without security has a 300% increased chance of experiencing a break-in, which is why it’s important to secure your home, and these are the most effective ways to do that.
One in four Americans doesn’t lock their doors, so the simplest protection measure is locking your door. Americans can stop 33% of burglaries just by locking their doors, so lock your door at all times, even if you think you don’t need to.
If you think someone is breaking into your home, remain calm, call 911, and explain what’s going on. Then, stay where you are and remain quiet until the police remove the intruder from your home, and unless you’re a skilled professional, avoid using a weapon unless necessary.
