Personal Property Security

  • Always lock bikes, even if you leave them for just a minute.
  • Inscribe valuable items, such as television, stereos, and computers with the identifying number approved by local police.
  • Lock every bicycle with a U-bar lock or quality padlock and chain.
  • Lock gate latches, garage doors, and shed doors with high-security, laminated padlocks. Lock them after every use.
  • Store and lock grills, lawn mowers, and other valuables in a garage or shed, or if left out in the open, hide them from view with a tarp and securely lock them to a stationary point.
  • Store firearms unloaded and locked in storage boxes and secured with trigger guard locks.
  • Update your home inventory and include pictures. Keep the complete inventory somewhere out of the house.
