Tips for protecting your home and vehicle from being victimized

Hawaii Vacation Rentals, Inc.Here on the islands we have a saying “Out of site out of mind”

Regarding homes:

Secure windows and doors, leavea light , TV or music on, keep garage door closed, lower hedges for easier visibility, install motion sensor lights, install alarm or similar devices, get to know your neighbors, let neighbors know when you travel.

Regarding cars:

Lock doors, roll up windows, do not leave keys in vehicle, keep valuables out of view, park vehicle near a light, park in garage if possible, install anti theft device, install alarm system.

Note:

These tips will help deter the amateur or common criminal , but will not stop determined criminal, professional or someone under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

If you come across a crime in progress or discover you have had a break in, leave the area immediately. The criminal might still be around. When you are clear from the area call 911 on your cell phone, pay phone or neighbors home.

If you awaken to a criminal in your home, or if they enter while you are awake and you are unable to leave, find a secure location, lock yourself from the intruder and call 911. If there is no phone in the room you have locked yourself into, open a window and yell from your neighbor’s help. But if possilbe, leave the home and call 911.

If you have others in your home (family, roommates, etc.) yell “there is a burglar in the house” so they can also secure themselves in  a safe area or leave the home. Making a plan ahead of time for an incident like this will help you and them be more prepared.

Note: Criminals will usually break into your home or car to steal items. Do not confront them. Your property is replaceable, you are not. Luckily the Big Island is still a safe and great community. We just have to be aware of possible situations that very rarely would arise.
