Posted: Updated:

Here are some tips from local law enforcement for keeping your home safe over the holidays.

1. Deadbolt your doors, even when you're home.

3. Ask for home check-ups from law enforcement if you leave town.

4. Lock your home windows.

5. If you see something suspicious, such as someone circling your neighborhood slowly, call police.

6. Stop newspaper deliveries when you leave town, and have a neighbor pick up your mail.

7. Turn off your TV whenever you leave.

8. Don't post updates about being out of town to social media.

9. If you have a home alarm, set it whenever you leave. 

10. Be aware of what boxes you throw away from new products you buy. You could tip off thieves that you just bought a new TV, laptop, iphone, etc.
