(COVID-19 Working From Home)

  • It is human nature to drop our guards in the areas we are most familiar and comfortable. Home is one of these places and this is why most car accidents happen less than two miles from where we live.

 

  • Law enforcement reports an uptick in daylight home burglaries and a more brazen element to these crimes, and in some areas we see an increase in home invasion robberies.

 

  • Working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic in some ways makes your home a harder target, and in others a softer target.
  • While we should always see home as our sanctuary, it is still important to maintain a relaxed state of awareness with regard to safety and security.
  • The goal of this home safety training is to help you make your family and your dwelling more difficult and less desirable as targets especially during this unique period of stay home instructions / work from home protocol.
