How Safe is Your Tampa Home?

Don’t let this happen to you!

Burglars will target you when you aren’t home. They ring the door bell several times, and knock on the door several times checking to see if anyone was home. Door Kick-Ins are more common than you think.

Statistics show 52% of break ins are done through either the front door or the back door. It is an easy entry point and offers burglars a way to get stuff out of your home with ease. So what can be done to help prevent door kick ins?
