Crime and Safety Tip - Brighten away burglars

Q: How can I ward off break-ins and burglars from my Corcoran home?

A: Illuminating the front entrance of your home from dusk to dawn with a low-cost light fixture or plug-in timers enforces the sense that the home is occupied and watched.

Also consider motion-activated lights for side, back and garage doors as well as for the backyard. Be proactive – when you see a motion light go on, look to see what set it off. If what you see looks suspicious, call 9-1-1.
