According to the FBI only 15% of property stolen is returned by the police, and only 13% of reported burglaries are solved. The average burglary results in a dollar loss of about $1,600. Let’s try and prevent you from having that loss. Photocopy receipts of expensive items for insurance reasons. Use a bolted down safe to store important documents and valuables. Leaving empty boxes of newly purchased electronics by the curb is a dead giveaway that your home is loaded with new stuff.

Photograph and catalog expensive jewelry or other pricey items and store that information in the safe. Purchase art-security hangars for pricey artwork. Consider getting a home security system.
