If you were locked out of your house, would you still be able to get in? Maybe you keep an unlocked window in the back, or a hidden key in your mailbox, or on top of a window ledge.
You may think this is a good idea, but guess what? If you can break in, so can a burglar!
For a small amount of time and money you can make your home more secure and reduce your chances of being a victim. Many burgulars spend no longer than 60 seconds to try to breaking into a home. Good locks — and good neighbors who watch out for each other — can be big deterrents to burglars.
