TIP:  Lock your doors and windows; most home burglaries in Newport Beach could have been prevented by doing so.

TIP:  If your GPS is stolen, the thief can use HOME to locate your address and potentially burglarize your home as well.  Rather than using your actual home address, consider using a business
address near your home in your car's GPS system.

TIP:  As you organize your files and get ready to prepare tax returns, be careful what you throw out in the trash. Bank statements, credit card statements and receipts, as well as any other
documents with personal information should be shredded before being put in the trash.

TIP:  Are you or a friend holding an Open House?  Follow these tips to make sure you don't become a victim of theft.
  • Always secure your valuables prior the hosting an Open House.
  • If you are hosting your own Open House, you should consider having a second person assist you. One person should remain at the front of the house to greet prospective buyers and the
    second person can roam through the house as needed.
  • As prospective buyers arrive, jot down their vehicle descriptions, license numbers, and physical descriptions.
  • Open all the blinds and curtains, and turn on all lights.
  • If you are showing your home, always walk behind the prospective buyer. Direct them; don’t lead them. Say, for example, “The kitchen is on your left,” and gesture for them to go ahead of
    you.
  • Inform neighbors that you are holding an Open House.
  • Don’t forget to place your purse in a secure location.
  • Remember to stay alert! Thieves will often work in teams and attempt to distract a realtor/homeowner to provide an opportunity for their partner to commit a theft.
  • If you discover a crime has occurred, please contact the Newport Beach Police Department immediately by calling 949-644-3717.
