  • Check to see that any sliding glass doors, windows, or connecting doors are locked.
  • Do not invite strangers to your room.
  • When away from your room, keep the TV or radio on so that persons who may be interested in breaking into and entering the room may think someone is present. Utilize the “Do Not Disturb” sign for the same effect.
