Your first line of defense against burglary? Your door.

Saw a Roosevelt neighbor at Grateful Bread today.  He mentioned that he’s putting together a neighborhood block watch with his neighbors (some drug dealer issues near Lake City Way).

In talking with North Precinct officers about the block watch, the subject of local burglaries came up.  Turns out, many of these homes had unlocked doors.  A quick test of the doorknob is all it took for entry.

So, that’s our home safety tip for the day: LOCK YOUR DOORS.  And that goes for windows, too.
