HLF - Publication, Tuesday, July 22, 2008 3 Just a precaution Forty per cent of us will experience a house break-in at some point in our lives, says Mark Norton, general manager of ADT Security. With winter dark upon us, ADT Security urges residents to take extra care. Never leave the house without locking up. The most common time for burglary is between 8am and noon. And Friday is the most popular day for burglaries. Nearly 40 per cent of theft happens at the front door. Replace hollow-core doors replace them with solid wood. Invest in quality locks. Install alarms and light sensors. Thieves will be less likely to rob you if they think you are at home. Never leave your house in holiday mode. Ask someone to collect mail, set lights on a timer or keep the radio on. Keep neighbours in the know. One in five people don't warn their neighbours about thieves. Establish a neighbourhood watch.
