Peel police say residential break-ins are typically crimes of opportunity.

Burglars will target certain homes based on what they look like such as a property that does not appear to be maintained or “lived-in”.

Corner lot homes could also be considered easier targets as well as homes that back onto parks and other open spaces.

Peel Regional Police have these recommendations for residents on how to maintain a safe home:

  • Ensure that shrubs and hedges around your property are maintained to have clear lines of sight to all accessible windows and doors
  • Keep garage and screen doors locked, even while at home
  • Get to know your neighbours and join forces by looking out for each other’s properties
  • Consider installing a second locking device for your windows and any sliding doors
