What can Landlord and Tenants do to reduce crimes at property? 



*Alarm System - You can elect to go with a professional alarm company or you can do it yourself.



*Dogs (Beware of Dog Sign) - Some of the best breed for watch dogs are Bloodhound, Golden Retriever, Labrador, and Boxer.


*Leave Lights On - or on timer - timers can be purcahsed for as low as $20


*Leave TV or Radio on while out - the sound of noise coming from your home will make it appear as someone is home


*Neighboorghood Watch Programs - www.nnw.org  - there are app's on your smart phone that you can join, such as www.nwapp.org and Nextdoor app


*Securtiy Screen on front door - these screens make it hard for an intruder to kick in your front door.

They can be purchased from you local hardware store and range from $100 on up ... please be sure to check with your HOA on any restrictions. 


*Locks on side gates - this can make your property appear less opportunistic


*Trim Shrubs and bushes - keeping a well maintained yard makes it difficult for someone to possible hide behind
