Crime Prevention Tip

You should never leave personal or expensive property in plain view inside your office. At a minimum, you should lock such items inside a desk or file cabinet. To assure the security of such items, take them home with you each day. If your office door has an air vent, consider having a metal grate installed over the vent. This will serve as a further deterrence to a burglar. Of course, a solid core wood door with no air vent is preferred.
