The Madison Police Department Crime Prevention Safety Tip of the week.
"Come in the door is unlocked"
How many times have you heard this or have you ever said it?
A well known criminal technique is to knock on the door to see if someone is home.
If the door is unlocked and you are in another room do not invite the criminal in.
Always lock your doors even when you are at home. It can take a matter of seconds to open an unlocked door and steal anything of value like wallets, purses, or electronics.
