Holiday Crime Prevention Tips

During the Holiday break between semesters, many students will be leaving their residence hall, apartment or home for an extended period of time. Here are some helpful tips to remember before leaving for the holidays.

Make sure all doors and windows are properly secured.
When leaving home for an extended time, have a neighbor or family member watch your house and pick up your newspapers and mail.
Consider taking all items of “high value” back to you primary residence; money, jewelry, TV, DVD, stereo, computer.
If you choose to leave items of “high value,” make sure that you have recorded the serial numbers. It is recommended that you mark or engrave your property with your driver’s license, so that it can be identified as your property.
Large displays of valuables should not be visible through the windows and doors of your home.
Indoor and outdoor lights should be on an automatic timer.
Leave a radio or television on so the house looks and sounds occupied.

Testimonials

“After living in Evansville, Indiana for 65 of my 67 years, it was more than a little stressful to consider moving 300 miles away, when even moving across town can be anxiety-provoking. Diane’s friendly & professional demeanor truly eased my tension as she helped me find and buy the house I did.  She also gave me the names of plumbers, heating & air people etc. to make my adjustment here even easier”.
