New & Noteworthy

DID YOU KNOW SASKATOON HAD 2290 BREAK & ENTERS LAST YEAR?

SASKATOON HAS SOME OF THE HIGHEST CRIME RATES IN CANADA
The Saskatoon Police Service has an on-line Crime Mapping Tool that shows where all the crime is. Over the past year we had 1099 Residential B&Es, 814 Business B&Es and 377 Other B&Es for a total of 2290 Break & Enters.

How to Feel Safe


Use Common Sense:

  • If you lose a key, get the locks changed.
  • Ask all strangers for identification.
  • Never hide an extra key outdoor - especially underneath a mat or on top of a light fixture. This is the first place the bad guys look. Leave an extra house key with a friend or a neighbor.
  • DO NOT advertise on Facebook or other social media that you are on vacation.
  • For insurance purposes take photos of the contents of your home.
  • Keep all receipts in a safe and easy to find location.
  • Write down the model and serial number of all electronics.

Make it Difficult:

  • Door chains are easy to bypass. Install deadbolts. Even better, install an ALARM.COM Smart Lock.
  • Install a stopper or stick on all sliding doors and windows.
  • Install window bars on all basement windows.
  • Make sure all doors and windows are properly locked.
  • Keep your premises well lit at night.
  • Install timers that turn lights on at different times. This gives the appearance that someone is home. Even better, install ALARM.COM Light and Lamp Modules.

Install a monitored Smart Security system:

  • 400% less likely to have a break-in.
  • up to 25% insurance discount.
  • No Phone Line required when you have ALARM.COM
  • optional ALARM.COM e-mail notifications.
  • optional ALARM.COM automatic lights, locks and thermostat control from your smartphone.
  • optional ReedHD Hi-Def Video Cameras - 10x more detail

In case you do have a Break-in:

  • If it looks like a door or window was forced open, DO NOT go inside. The Burglar may still be on site.
  • Call the Police from your cell phone or from a neighbor's house and wait.
