The Livermore Police Department (LPD) shared a post on Twitter Wednesday warning the community of residential burglaries where suspects have gained access into a home by entering through the backyard and then breaking rear sliding glass doors and windows.

LPD accompanied the post with a graphic featuring a list of tips and reminders for how to help prevent becoming a victim of burglary.

The list includes:  

  • Lock doors, windows and backyard gates
  • Don't leave your garage open 
  • Don't leave valuables unattended outside your home 
  • Make sure entrances, exits, gates have good locks (deadbolts preferred) and sturdy doors 
  • If possible, install video surveillance. You can share video through the Ring app and register cameras with PD 
  • Join or form a Neighborhood Watch group. Livermore PD works with Neighborhood Watch groups 
  • Encourage neighbors to call 911 if they see something suspicious 
  • Have good lighting (motion lights are great)
  • Trim bushes for visibility and to prevent hiding spots 

If a crime is in progress, LPD encourages people to call 911. For those who have been a victim of burglary but there is no crime in progress, LPD's non-emergency line is 925-371-4987.
