Burglary Prevention

-Lock all outside doors and windows before you leave or go to bed.

-Leave lights on when you go out.

-Keep your garage door closed and locked.

-Don't allow daily deliveries to accumulate.

-Arrange to have your lawn cut in summer /driveway shoveled in winter while you are away.

-Never leave keys in obvious "hiding places" (in planters,under door mats and in mailboxes.)

-Keep a detailed list of valuables and store the list outside of your home.

-Be a good neighbor - If you notice anything suspicious contact the Niskayuna Police at once.

-Record the serial numbers of other valuable possessions for future reference with a video camera to
inventory personal items.  

-Store the tape away from the home or business (safe deposit box). The tape will also be valuable for insurance purposes in case of a fire.
