Please review the Home, Garage & Vehicle Security Tips below.  We also attached a Home Security Checklist to this notice, so you can print it out and conduct a security assessment on your home to see what security measures you can take to “harden the target”.

Home, Garage & Vehicle Security Tips

  • Always lock your windows and doors when you go out, even if for only a few minutes.
  • If your home is equipped with an alarm, always activate it- even if you’re only going out for a short walk.
  • Always keep your front and rear porch lights on from dusk to dawn and use motion detector lighting along the sides of your home or areas with little foot traffic.
  • If your garage door has a remote shutoff button on the wall-mounted control, located in the garage, consider locking the door nightly. This will prevent your garage door from being opened remotely.
  • Always close your garage door & keep the pedestrian door locked.
  • Lock your vehicle even when you park in the garage.
  • Treat your garage door opener as if it were a key to your home and remove it from your vehicle when not parking in your garage.
  • Do not store car keys in or near the vehicle even when parking in your garage.
  • Lock and secure all doors and windows to your vehicle every time you park.
  • Remove all valuables from your vehicle even when you park inside your garage.
Report all suspicious activity by calling the Newport Beach Police Department at 949-644-3717.
