Crime Prevention Tip:

Have you considered how many people have access to a key that unlocks your office door? You may be surprised by the amount of keys that may be out there. With that in mind, take care to secure your property. Try not to store personal property in your office and property that is left in your office should further be secured by placing it in a secured desk drawer or secured cabinet.
