Home Safe Home

You lock your doors. You lock your windows. You keep your garage locked. You probably even make sure a friend or neighbor watches over your house while you’re away for a trip. Do you think you’ve done enough to reduce your risk of falling victim to a break-in? Maybe you’ve never wondered exactly what a burglar looks for if they get in to your house. Maybe you’ve never questioned whether your family dog would keep you, your family and your property safe from an intruder. We are asking all those questions for you in our "Home Safe Home" series on Local 6 TODAY.

Every Thursday in February, Mychaela Bruner works with local homeowners and law enforcement to teach you how to best keep yourself, your family and your property safe from criminals.

Let us know the lengths you go to protect yourself against a break-in or burglary.
