As burglaries rise, session offers security tips

Here are some very good home security tips from the Houston area. The specific details start about half way through. Follow the link at the bottom:

"One of the issues discussed was the use of locks. Traditional door locks located on door knob have spring locks, which are easy to open with a credit card. Krysiak recommends a single deadbolt for doors without windows and a double deadbolt for those within 40 inches of a window. A double deadbolt is one with a lock on the inside of the house. The bolt should be at least an inch long."
