Staying Safe in Apartments

Apartment or condo living is a very popular home option because of it's economy, location and convenience. However, because more and more people are choosing apartments over houses, it has become a target to burglars, thieves and intruders.

Follow these advice to minimize the threat and possibility of your becoming a victim in your own home.

  • Get a pet. If your landlord allows the tenants to have a pet, consider getting a dog or a cat. Pets can serve as the ideal living companion an and are often the best kind of security system to have. Pets have a keen sense and they react to possible danger before you see it.
  • Become familiar with the habits of your neighborhood and take the time to get to know your neighbors.
  • Pay close attention to detail and always stay alert.
  • Before moving into your new apartment, be sure to change all the locks on the doors and windows.
  • Keep your doors and windows locked at all times. If your apartment door does not have a peephole, ask your landlord if you could have one installed. This eliminates the need to open your doors to see who is outside.
  • Have your apartment inspected to identify vulnerable spots and address them.
  • Park your car in a well lit area or areas that are visibly and busy.
  • Never leave anything in your car that would attract a thief's attention.
  • Check the occupants of the elevator before going in. If you feel uncomfortable, trust your instincts and wait for the next one.
  • Only list your first initial and last name for mailboxes and directory.
  • Invest in a dead bolt on the door. This is extremely difficult to tamper with.
  • Don't advertise when you are going to be away for a time and never leave a spare key with anyone you do not trust. Ask a friend to check your apartment everyone in a while if you are going to be away for longer periods of time.
  • Know all emergency numbers, just in case.
