R = Remove your valuables from sight, even in the car. Thieves will strike wherever there is an opportunity.
E = Everyone does not need to know what you are doing before you do it- consider delaying those social posts. Remember the crooks are watching out for these, so they know when you are at home and away.
S = Stop the newspapers, they are a tell-tale sign you are away. Get a friend to clear the mail and check out your house in your absence.
T = Take time to lock the windows and doors, even if you are at home. Tell your neighbours if you are going away.
