Elkhart Police offer tips for keeping your home safe while away on vacation

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.
