Although our motor vehicle breaking and entering’s are down, we are still seeing continued problems in our neighboring jurisdictions. Both Winston-Salem and the Forsyth Co. have been reporting Residential burglaries and some motor vehicle theft or motor vehicle larcenies from unlocked cars.

The popular point of entry is to the basements or at the rear of the home by kicking open the door. It is not uncommon for these criminals to knock on front doors first to see if someone is home.

Several companies make doorbell cameras that store information remotely and alert your smart phones when there is motion at that door, it’s a nice feature to preventing and solving crime.

There are several companies that make door frame security hardware which is an easy way to make your door frame more sturdy. It adds steel reinforcement to the door frame which is the weakest point of the door.

If you see something out of place please call us at 336-996-3177 or if in progress call 911.

Thanks and be safe.
