Secure homes this summer

As you and the family take off for summer outings, remember to take a few sensible precautions. Before leaving town:

*Don't leave a message on the answering machine saying you will be away from home.

*Create the illusion you are in the house by keeping some shades and blinds up. If available, use a timer for lights, radios, and TVs.

*Keep shrubs trimmed away from house to prevent places of concealment.

*Lock any doors connecting your home's interior to the garage, even if closed with an automatic device.

*Invest in low-level lighting to illuminate the perimeter of your house.

*Talk to neighbors about organizing a community watch.
