They’re making a list and checking it twice – and we don’t mean Santa. Burglars know that the holiday season means its prime time for them to stock up on some goodies of their own. They plan ahead to take advantage of unsuspecting individuals who are focusing on the more joyous aspects of the season, such as trying to get the best shopping deals or traveling to visit with family and friends. It’s the most wonderful time of the year for not only you and your family, but for thieves too.

Thefts and break-ins typically skyrocket during the holiday season because thieves know that many families leave their homes and cars unattended and sometimes even unlocked. While insurance might cover these thefts, it won’t alleviate the victim’s violation of privacy concerns or restore their confidence of being safe and secure. Further, some items have more sentimental value than monetary. All said, the after-effects of theft linger long after the item or its monetary value has been recouped. Here are some steps we can take to keep home, family, and possessions protected from theft at home, in the vehicle, and online.
