Our last meeting was held on October 4th, 2011. At the meeting, we all learned about "Target Hardening, Making Your Home A Safer Place". The following items were addressed:

Appearance (i.e., landscaping)

One suggestion provided was to make sure tree limbs drop no lower than 7 feet and bushes around your home remain under 3 feet. These landscape height suggestions can prevent a person from hiding behind your landscaping while breaking into your home. It also gives law enforcement good visibility of your house if they are ever looking for a suspect.
