- When you leave your home for more than a day at a time, prevent burglaries by planning ahead. Increase your home safety by stopping your mail via your local post office or ask your neighbor to collect your mail for you. If you have newspapers thrown in your yard, ask a neighbor to collect those too. If you have a home alarm system be sure to set it. If you have a home safe be sure to put all of your valuables in it and lock it too. Make sure it is a large safe, or most burglars will simply take the safe without taking time to try to open it and risk setting off the home alarm.
