Some great tips from our Crime Prevention Team! Re: Media releases in Jan 2016, Feb 2016 and March 2016
BASIC SECURITY TIPS:
Keep your patio doors and windows locked at ALL times.
Engage the locking pin on your patio door (if it is installed with one).
Put a piece of wood dowel inside your patio door track. The wood should be a minimum of 1” in diameter.
CLOSE all blinds and curtains when not at home or in the evening.
Don’t leave valuables and small electronics in places where they could be seen from the outside.
REPORT suspicious activity or people immediately to police.
Report all security defaults to your building manager immediately.
Get to know your neighbours. Know who lives in your building and who doesn’t belong.
If you don’t know the person, do not allow them to follow you into the building.
Never buzz anyone into your building if you don’t know who they are.
DON’T ASSUME EVERYONE IS AS HONEST AS YOU!
