Hopefully with the "rainy" season coming in any day now, residents will remember to keep their windows closed AND locked. During the few days of exceptionally "HOT for Alameda" temperatures, often there is no options than to keep your windows open and pray for that bay breeze to help cool off, especially at night, and often, its too easy to forget to close AND lock...!!!

Several burglaries that has been reported lately was done and committed coming in thru a back window or a sliding door that was left unlocked by the homeowner. This burglars are very opportunistic and they make their own rounds and survey what could be an easy target for them. Summer is fast approaching we always love to open these windows and door to let the fresh air in to the house. But please always remember to close and lock those doors and windows when leaving the house or towards the evening. As a back up you can install an affordable home security device like the Bulldog Bar to re-enforced your front doors, windows and back doors. Don't allow yourself to be a victim by adding this security devices just in case. For more information about this security devices please call or visit:the Bulldog Bar.com and sleep well in the evenings.
