It doesn't cost much to ensure your home's security

I might have written this article by Deborah Abrams myself.  It bears a great similarity to the advice and points I provide in the first chapter of Advice From A Risk Detective, including my recommendation to use wooden dowels to secure windows that don't lock well.

As fall turns into winter, and it becomes darker earlier in the day, it's worth it to review what easy and inexpensive steps you might take to secure your home.  As you're doing fall cleanup, do make sure that shrubs are not covering windows.  The only shrub we have near a first floor window is a prickly holly bush, which is an effective deterrent on the curb side of the house.
