Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services – Home Security Audit Guide

“People tend to think of burglary in strictly physical terms – as illegal access to your home, items taken and/or items destroyed.

But burglary can have a significant impact on a person’s mental well-being. Burglary victims often speak of a sense of violation. This can lead to feelings of fear, anger and emotional distress, particularly in children and the elderly. To protect your loved ones, your property and your home, you are encouraged to improve the security in and around your home!

This Home Security Audit Guide provides general information about keeping your home secure. It provides guidance about taking precautions to reduce the risk of burglary around your home. Inexpensive and do-it-yourself suggestions are provided to help you maximize the security of your home. For further information and assistance, you or your community group may want to contact your local police service or crime prevention association.”

To arrange a free, personal home security audit call your local Division’s Crime Prevention Officer.  For 11 Division home and business owners please call416-808-1108.

14 Division – Home Security Tips

Most thieves look to steal small, expensive easy to carry & conceal items – cash, wallets, purses, credit cards, identification, jewellery and electronic equipment. Remember to take steps to safe guard these items. Don’t give a thief a free opportunity, remember to lock your doors and windows.
• Make sure all doors, windows and skylights to your house and garage are always closed and locked.
• Park your vehicle in a locked garage if possible.
• Keep your vehicle locked at all times.
• Use your exterior lighting. Regularly check to ensure all exterior lighting around your home is powered and operational.
• Install exterior lighting around the complete perimeter of your home if you don’t already have it.
• If you hav e a back alley or easement, be sure no unauthorized person can get into this area.
• Beware of landscaping that may provide cover or concealment for someone lurking around your home.
• Trim back trees and bushes on your property. Make use of hostile plants with thorns to keep out unwanted people.
• Ask your neighbours to keep an eye on your home with the promise you’ll do the same for them. Concentrate on houses where people are away on vacation.
• Be aware of your surroundings and what is going on in your neighbourhood.
