Springbreak House Safety
by Sgt. Ed Jones

    Spring break for Salisbury University occurs the week of March 19-23. Many students will be away from their off-campus apartment or house. The safety of these dwellings is a great concern as some off-campus residences have been burglarized in years past. Here are some crime prevention tips to be aware of while you are away on Springbreak.

  1. Have good locks on the doors and windows — use them.
  2. Make sure your residence appears lived in — not empty.
  3. Ask a neighbor to keep an eye on your residence while you are gone.
  4. Use timers to turn lights, TV’s, or radios on and off while you are gone.
  5. Turn your phone ringers down or off.
  6. Do not announce your absence on your answering machine.
  7. Try to leave a vehicle parked in the driveway while you are gone.
  8. Take all valuables with you.
  9. Ask the local police to check your residence while you are away.
