Jackson Police Department is cautioning against behaviors through the upcoming holiday period that set residents up for home burglaries.  They advise don’t have deliveries made at your home and left on your doorstep while you are gone, don’t announce your new high-dollar purchases after the holidays by leaving boxes for new TVs, stereos or computers outside your trashcan, don’t talk about an upcoming trip on the social network, avoid leaving valuables inside your vehicle while shopping, and if you put presents under the Christmas tree, place them there at the last minute.  Among the advice of things to do that will discourage burglaries is having exterior holiday lights that not only make the home look festive, but illuminate areas around windows and doors where burglars may otherwise seek entry.  Finally, if you do plan on going somewhere, the police department urges residents to have a neighbor look after items that may appear on your doorstep like newspapers or other deliveries – and let the police department know you will be away.
