“Avoid announcing any travel plans that you may have for Martin Luther King weekend. Wait to post photos until after you return home. Even if you trust your friends, many times their friends and friends of friends can all see your information, too. You don’t want to give a thief an invitation to your home.
Additional home safety tips before you leave for vacation:
-Lock your doors, including the garage door. Unlocked doors are open invitations to intruders.
-Ask a trusted family member, friend, or neighbor to keep a watchful eye on your home or have your mail held at the local post office until your return.
-Put lights on timers to give the impression that someone is home."
