Doll I recall several years ago as a patrol officer, receiving a call on one sunny, Saturday afternoon, while I was on patrol. I was alerted that there was a "Possible burglary in progress." I had received many calls of this nature before however this time, the address was mine. As I rushed to get there, all I could think about was rhy wife and new born daughter, home alone, as someone was breaking in our home. Upon my arrival, I immediately noticed a side gate that was open. As I made my way through the gate and around the back of the house, I noticed our back door ajar. To my relief, my wife and daughter were inside and safe and I was able to secure my home and quickly conclude what had happened. While my wife was on the living room floor, playing with our daughter, someone had entered our backdoor, under the assumption that no one was home. Luckily, when they noticed my family inside, they left. We lived in a small town at the time, roughly the size of Carlisle. We never thought we had reason to worry about our back door being unlocked, especially during the day and when one of us was home. Little did we know, there was! As more of us start to wheel out the barbecue grills, begin to work routinely in our yards, and start engaging in our outdoor activities, we also start to open our windows and doors. We leave to go to the grocery store for twenty minutes, down the block to a friend's house for ten, or even to the gas station for five, and we assume there is no need to worry about "locking up" for such a short amount of time. The problem with this is we have found that thieves are often very lazy and look for the easiest route to your possessions. Thieves don't want to work hard to get what they want, so by leaving garage doors open, sliding glass doors ajar, and car doors or our homes unlocked, we make it easier for thieves. Although locks may only deter an offender, it just may be enough to stop one from entering your home. However, there are times when even locks won't prevent a thief. By simply locking your doors and windows and by shutting your garage when you are not home, you could be saving your valuables, identity, and could be preventing one big headache. When a burglary or theft is reported, an officer faces great odds against catching the perpetrator. The Carlisle Police Department has been fortunate at our success rate in solving several theft and burglary cases, however, it is much simpler to be proactive and secure your residence and/or vehicles from becoming easy targets. During the summer months, while enjoying the outdoors, remember that criminals are always on the prowl looking for the easiest steal. It is easy to assume, "It won't, happen to me," but that's when the DVD player and laptop come up missing or even worse, when somebody gets hurt. The message here is simple - An open door is an open invite. Secure your doors and windows, especially when you're going to be gone, no matter how long you might be. Be mindful of your belongings and be proactive, not reactive. Carlisle Alumni Association The Carlisle Alumni Association would like to invite all alumni to attend our brief planning meetings.
