sophisticated crime. Burglars do not choose victims, they choose
opportunities. Deterring a criminal starts with having solid exterior doors and
windows with quality locks, equally important is remembering to keep doors and
windows locked. Visible security devices, such as alarm systems and video
surveillance, also act as a deterrent because the devices increase the
