Personal Protection Tip: Safely Respond To Unexpected Visitors To Thwart Burglary Attempts

Personal Protection Tip: A common tactic used by burglars is to ring doorbells of unoccupied homes. When it is confirmed that no one is home, the would-be burglars will go to the back of the home and break out a window to gain entry. Thus, if you are home it is advisable to at least safely respond to an unexpected doorbell ring to at least thwart a possible burglary attempt of your residence.

For example, in December of 2011 a Harrison Twp girl was home from school when burglars invaded her home. Luckily, she was able to hide under a bed and call 9-1-1 to alert the local police which promptly responded and caught the law-breakers. 

However, do keep in mind that there are members of the criminal element who have no qualms about invading known occupied homes. Thus, answering unexpected doorbell rings may deter burglars but will not deter home-invaders. The latter can only be stopped via justified force.
