Police Provide Tips to Close Up Your Cottage
Friday, October 09, 2015 (1103 reads)

Cottage break-ins are crimes of opportunity and thieves will look for easy targets. With the end of cottage season approaching, owners of recreational properties need to make their cottage less attractive for thieves. 
One way to minimize the risk of a break-in is to avoid leaving valuables inside and outside your cottage. As with the house in the city, it is important to make sure the cottage looks like it is being maintained on a regular basis.  The OPP recommend installing a gate, making it more difficult for thieves to get in and get out quickly.
Using automatic timers on indoor cottage lights may be enough of a deterrent to keep potential thieves away if they are doing a drive-by in search of possible targets.
Exterior doors should be fitted with solid dead bolts. Windows can be boarded up for the off season. Sliding
If possible, have someone stop by and check the property on a regular basis. The sooner signs of damage or foul play can be reported the better it is for both the police and the property owner.
An alarm system is another way to help protect your cottage from thieves. It is one more factor that could make the thieves think twice about targeting your place.
It is important to properly document all of the items at the cottage. This includes taking photos or a video of the inside of the cottage, keeping purchase receipts and recording all serial numbers
