Police at 55 Division are urging East End residents to take extra precautions after some recent night-time break-ins.

Motion-activated outdoor lighting is a great help. Keep valuables out of plain sight in your home. Lock all doors and windows before going to bed, including sliding doors, in all rooms, and on all floors. Old hockey sticks can be cut to length to prevent windows and sliding doors from being slid open.

Checking that everything is secure should become a daily ritual. Make sure your home is safe from unwanted entry while on vacation, at work, or even while you’re at home.
