ELKHART, Ind. — Elkhart Police have released tips on keeping your home protected for those looking to vacation or leave for extended periods of time.
- Let a trusted neighbor know you'll be away and leave a key with them if possible.
- Keep a low profile on social media and refrain from telling anyone your home will be empty.
- Have someone retrieve your mail as papers and piling mail are a giveaway that no one is home.
- Put your lights or electronics on timers as this gives the illusion that someone is home.
