GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- With fewer daylight hours during the winter months, burglaries become more common. Greenburgh Police Chief Joseph DeCarlo is offering tips to residents to keep homes and families safe.

Here's a list of things that make a home a target to burglars:

  • An unlighted home. Absence of interior lighting indicates a home is unoccupied.
  • Ground floor windows left unlocked and/or open.
  • Residence doors left unlocked and/or open.
  • Garage doors left open.
  • Accumulated newspapers outside residence.
  • Mail accumulated in mailbox.
  • Snow un-shoveled.
  • Grass Overgrown.
  • Packages left in plain view.

Important steps that can be taken in order to prevent burglaries are:

  • Setting your alarm. Many times, burglary victims have alarms that were not set.
  • Installing exterior lights with motion sensors.
  • Securing valuables in discreet locations other than the master bedroom.
  • Partnering with the police. If you see something suspicious, call police.
