Potomac Landing Elementary School Safety

Security Concerns for Houses (link to SAFE flyer):

  • The average home is not difficult to enter without a key.
  • Burglars often target windows and doors not visible from the street.
  • About half of residential burglaries are unforced entries (door or window unlocked).
  • Forced entries commonly use a prying tool or break a small window pane.
  • Locks that require a key for exit could hinder you in an emergency.
  • Most residential burglaries occur during the day.
  • Alarm systems can serve as a back-up security tool.
  • Visibility and upkeep are important in preventing crime.
  • Be proactive – ask for a security assessment and join a Neighborhood Watch.

Unwanted Visitors at Your Door (link to SAFE flyer):

  • Ignoring an unwanted person at your door is not the safest response – they may assume the house is empty and attempt entry.
  • They look for unlocked doors and windows.
  • Answer without opening the door.
  • If they show a company or agency ID, call to verify.
  • If they are aggressive or ignore your instruction to leave –call 911.
  • Notify your Neighborhood Watch phone tree.
  • Does the person at your door have a Solicitation License?
