The 9 p.m. routine

97

Chatham-Kent police urge residents to develop a ‘9 p.m. routine’ around their house as a means to help protect against crime.

Criminals look for easy opportunities, police say, and this routine may help prevent crimes of opportunity.

Every night at 9 p.m., homeowners are encouraged to ensure the following checklist is complete:

Remove valuables and garage door openers from vehicles.

Lock vehicles.

Close the overhead garage door.

Lock the door between the garage and house.

Close and lock all external doors.

Ensure windows are closed and locked.

Turn on an exterior light.
