With spring break just around the corner, many people are busy planning their vacations and preparing to leave Minneapolis. Minneapolis Police want to remind vacationers to take a few minutes to secure their homes so that they can have a worry-free vacation.

So your best protection is to make your home appear occupied and to make it difficult to break in to. Follow these simple, easy-to-follow tips as a checklist to help protect your home against break-ins and theft while you’re away.
