Crime prevention starts with information sharing between the police and the community to create and maintain a safe environment. The Residential Inventory & Security Education Handbook is a guide that helps the people of our community to protect their property from invaders, opportunists, and other who wish to take inappropriate advantage of circumstances that deprive those of their hard-earned assets. This guide discusses a variety of home security aspects. Upon reading it, you will become familiar with how key control, lighting, landscaping, door hinges and locks, window security, and alarm systems can deter the opportunity for crime to occur. The guide also discusses safe practices, such as using automatic timers, using visible house numbers, and programming emergency telephone numbers into your phones for quick and easy retrieval for use. Lastly, the guide stresses the importance of marking and recording your property to make it easily identifiable during police investigations and reduce the time it takes to recover your property should it be stolen.
