- If you return home and something looks questionable such as a slit screen, a broken window or an open door, do not go in. Call the police from a neighbor’s house or a public phone.
- At night, if you think you hear someone breaking in, leave safely if you can, then call police. If you can’t leave, lock yourself in a room with a phone and call police. If an intruder is in your room, pretend you are asleep.
