Halloween Vandalism

Halloween is a great holiday for kids and adults to put on some imagination and have some fun. However, every year we hear about some individuals taking things too far, and transitioning from hi-jinks to all out Halloween vandalism. Luckily, there are some things you can do to lower your risk of becoming a target. Make sure to protect yourself and your property by following these simple steps.

1) Make sure your doors are locked up tight

If you are going to be away from home for Halloween night, make sure you are extra diligent about locking up tight. This is also true for business owners.

2) Park in the garage to deter egging

To dissuade Halloween vandals, make sure to pull the car in the garage for the evening. Business owners should also look for an indoor parking location as well.

3) Keep your home or business well lit

Keeping the lights off is a good money saving tip, but Halloween may be the one night to leave the lights on for the evening.


4) Hand out candy from the driveway

A clever way to keep troublemakers off of your property without being a Halloween Scrooge is to set up s table by the sidewalk. It allows you to have fun and get to know your neighbors without exposing your home to unnecessary risk.

5) Clean any acts of Halloween vandalism as quickly as possible

If you are the victim of Halloween vandalism, it is essential to remove the damage as quickly as possible, not just for you own peace of mind, but to discourage future acts of destruction (vandals love to see their work stay on display).
