The PNP reminds everyone to:

  • not let many people know that they are leaving their homes unattended.
  • make sure that their doors are locked.
  • make sure that their appliances unplugged.
  • as much as possible, use burglar alarms.
  • close their curtains to prevent outsiders from peeking in to their homes.
  • ask a trusted neighbor or friend to watch over their property.
