TUCKAHOE, N.Y. -- The Tuckahoe Police Department is offering tips to residents to keep their homes safe in light of a string of recent burglaries in the area. 

  • Have a deadbolt lock on your front door.
  • Don’t rely on a door chain, which can be very easily forced open. Install a door viewer to see who is at your door before you open it.
  • Keep your windows and doors locked.
  • Never buzz anyone you are not expecting into the building.
  • Do not hold the door open for a stranger when you are entering or leaving the building.
  • If you are out of your apartment for long periods, at work, out on the town for the evening or on a trip, use timers for your lights, radio and television.
