Keep your home safe while you're away

Date: December 30, 2014

If you are going to be away for the holidays, you can help keep your home safe by creating the appearance that your daily routine remains unchanged. 

Ferguson Township Police recommend these precautions:

  • Stop delivery of your mail and newspaper, or ask a neighbor to collect them for you

  • Ask neighbors to keep an eye on your property and report suspicious activity

  • Set your lights on timers

  • Leave a vehicle in your driveway

  • Make sure your doors and windows are locked

  • Avoid posting your departure and return dates on social media such as Facebook

  • Consider waiting until after you come home to post vacation photos
