October is National Crime Prevention Month, and Halloween often brings more mischief than treats, resulting in property damage claims in Bear, DE. Vandalism and theft incidents are prevalent, making it crucial to safeguard your home.

Follow these steps to lower your risk of becoming a target:

  1. Illuminate Your Property

Keep your property well-lit, inside and out. Many crimes occur in darkness, so ensure your home is well-illuminated even if you don't participate in trick-or-treating.

  1. Secure Your Car

Park your car in the garage and away from potential vandals. A well-protected car is less likely to be egged.

  1. Lock All Doors and Windows

Keep all doors and windows securely locked, front and back, to prevent potential burglaries.

  1. Hand Out Candy Wisely

Distribute candy from the end of your driveway rather than your front door to maintain control and deter focus on your home.

  1. Keep Your Lights On

Even after Halloween festivities, leave your lights on to discourage late-night vandalism. A well-lit property is less appealing to vandals and burglars.

  1. Bring in Your Jack O’ Lantern

To avoid pumpkin smashing, bring your jack-o'-lanterns inside before closing up for the night.

  1. Swiftly Address Vandalism

If your property is vandalized, act promptly to discourage future incidents. Removing damage quickly can deter vandals.
