Monrovia Police Burglary Prevention Tips

Some tips from the Monrovia Police Department on how to prevent home burglaries:

  • Lock all of your doors and windows when you are not home. Leave any exterior lights on if they are not sensor activated.
  • Make sure that all side gates are locked and secured. 
  • If you have an alarm system, activate it, even if you will be away for just a few minutes.
  • If you have surveillance cameras affixed to the exterior of your property, make sure you periodically check them to ensure they are working properly.
  • Ensure that all of your hedges and or bushes are trimmed from the front of your residence so that your house is not concealed from the street. 
  • Never leave old newspapers, mail or door leaflets piled up on the front steps of your residence. 
  • Never leave valuables in plain view from the outside. 
  • If you have valuables, please secure them in either a safe or safe deposit box at your local bank. 
  • Always take an active role in getting to know your neighborhood. 
  • Keep your eyes open to suspicious activity in your neighborhood and always do your part as a good witness. Never attempt to stop a crime; always call 911.
