Sergeant David Hicks of the Montgomery Police Department has some suggestions to help you avoid becoming a victim of crime during the Spring Break vacation period.
Spring break is almost here and many of you may be planning a much needed vacation. The last thing you need after a relaxing vacation is to return home and find that you have been a victim of a criminal act, especially a burglary. Here are a few tips that may keep you from being a victim.
Having a monitored security system installed can make your home and property safer and save you money as well! The FBI reports that homes without security systems installed are three times more likely to be burglarized.
It is a huge mistake to assume that damage or loss of your property will be covered by a landlord's insurance policy!. Rental property owners commonly carry only enough insurance to repair or replace the building or structures. It is the renter responsibility to insure his or her own personal property..
A victim of Identity theft can spend many months and sometimes years correcting the damage done by fraud caused by the theft of information associated with their bank accounts and credit cards.

If something catastrophic happened to your home (fire, tornado), would your insurance policy be enough to cover the cost of rebuilding it?
Festive candles and lights, electrical cords, trees and seasonal plants, and even baking and food serving activities all pose potential risks for injury or loss. Be sure you're being as safe as possible while enjoying your Christmas and New Year festivities!.
If your home is not insured up to its full replacement cost, you might have to come out of pocket to build it anew! Depending on how much time has passed since you first insured your home, how many and what kind of improvements you've made over the years, you may not be insured adequately to cover the full cost of rebuilding.
