Security Checklist

Are my locks all Grade 2 or better?

Do all of my doors have deadbolts that extend at least 1”?

Are all of the deadbolt strikes reinforced to the frame (inside the trim)?

Do I keep a list of everyone I give a copy of my keys to?

Do my keys have protection against unauthorized duplication?

Are my exterior doors all solid wood or wood filled with properly reinforced frames?

Is my property adequately lighted?

Are my shrubs trimmed back so that they don’t offer any hiding places?

If this home is new to me have I changed the locks?

For ideal security, you should be able to answer “Yes” to each of these questions.

If you answered “no” to any of the above questions, contact your local crime prevention officer, security specialist or locksmith for advice on how to improve your security.
