LOCK-TECH wants you to secure your doors before an intruder breaks in not after! Take these necessary preemptive measures....

To help burglar-proof your home, have 1-inch throw deadbolt locks on all exterior doors installed.

A door with ...too much space between the door and the frame is an invitation for the burglar to use a jimmy. Reinforce the door with a panel of 3/4-inch plywood or a piece of sheet metal.

If there are door hinges on the outside of your house, have the hinges replaced with security hinges with pins that can not be removed. Otherwise all a thief has to do to gain entry to your home is knock out the hinge pin.

You can burglar-proof your glass patio doors by having an auxiliary lock installed on the back of the door. These locks are specifically designed for these types of doors

It's easy for a burglar to pry through rot. We can replace rotted door frames with new, solid wood.

It's simple for a thief to break non-tempered glass panels and then reach in and open a doorknob from the inside. A door with glass panels should be either fortified, replaced, or secured with deadbolts that can only be opened with a key.

Protect your windows with one or more good locks, an alarm system, burglar-resistant glass, or many small panes instead of one large area of glass.

Burglars who came back for a second helping of loot from a Sun Ridge home were caught, township police say.
On Monday, Aug. 25, at about 7:17 p.m. police were dispatched to a residence on Almond Court in Raritan Township that had been burg...larized on Aug. 20. Several items were taken during the course of that burglary.

During this burglary, the same men, Franklin J. Carranza-Martinez, 21, and Mario Esteban-Amaya, 34, both of Morristown, had returned and tried to enter the residence again, police said. But this time the residents were at home and called 911. Police responded and caught them before they left the area. They were charged with burglary and theft.

With Burglaries on the rise, here are some things to keep in mind making you a less likely target.

• Promptly take garbage containers in from curbside.

• Promptly retrieve delivered newspapers, be sure to arrange for a delivery stop or so...meone to retrieve newspapers when away from home.

• Bring in mail daily, and, if away from home, arrange for a postal hold or someone to retrieve mail.

• Lock all exterior doors and windows.

• Lock vehicles--especially if there is a garage door opener inside the vehicle.

• Avoid leaving key fobs with push start ignitions in vehicles.

• Cut back overgrown shrubbery near the windows and doors.

• Lock yard gates.

• Get to know your neighbors.

• When observing anyone suspicious in the neighborhood, immediately call your local police. You are law enforcement’s “extended vision”.

• Take note of suspicious vehicles and record the license plate number if possible.

• Beware of “pretextual contacts” like individuals knocking on your door soliciting work, looking for a lost animal, or stating that they thought a friend lived at the residence. These could be efforts to determine whether the home is unoccupied at the time. Take note of the direction in which the person walks as well as any vehicles in which they enter, and notify the police of same.

• Master bedroom and master bedroom closets are primary locations in which burglars look for valuables. Put valuable in alternate locations.

When we think of a burglar, we think of a stereotypical ski-masked man dressed head to toe in black, crouched down, creeping in the dead of night, carrying a professional break-in artist's ideal toolkit. As common a culprit, however, is the... average-looking person dressed in average street clothes on your average workday, entering via an unlocked door or a brick-induced hole in a glass door.

There's no time of day in which your home is immune from burglaries; there are no standards of practice when it comes to how a burglar breaks in. Of the reported 2.5 million commercial and residential burglaries reported to the U.S. Department of Justice, most (61 percent) were forcible entry. 32.6 percent of burglars found the easy way in, and the balance represented foiled attempts.

If your home is burgled, the financial losses you'll sustain are bad enough. The trauma and unease in its aftermath, however, is a bell that can't be un-rung, and many burglary victims never again feel safe in their own homes.

The best way to handle burglars is to pre-empt their plans with proven preventive measures. Burglars look for, and sometimes create, specific characteristics and situations when choosing where and how to break in. In the sections to come, we will look at what stamps a bull's eye on your home, methods used for break-ins and 21st century tools that burglars use for finding their next victims.

Take precautions to avoid leaving signs that you're not at home.
Burglars aren't going to bother with targets they don't think will allow them to get in and out undetected. Ideal targets are homes with indications no one will return soon. A plastic-wrapped phone book left all day on a driveway, a note left on a front door for an afternoon package delivery -- these are examples of the types of things burglars look for.

Signs of life are likely to put off would-be thieves. They can be fooled by strategic lighting and loud broadcasts (radios consume less energy than TVs, and talk shows sound like conversations in the home). At night, lights and a radio or TV on timers keep homes looking occupied into the wee hours, deterring burglars and keeping families safer long after bedtime.

Bold burglars peer through windows hoping to spy silver services, plasma TVs and baseball card collections. Best bets: Move valuables out of sight, and keep stashes safe by closing window coverings while away.See More

Installing surveillance cameras around the outside of your home or business is a great way to deter burglars or keep an eye on the kids when they're outside playing or waiting for the School bus. Remote viewing from your smartphone or tablet is also becoming very popular. Not to mention a great deal of comfort knowing if something does happen you have it digitally recorded.
