What is a preventable crime? One that allows unforced access to property. For example, leaving garage doors open, doors and window to homes and vehicles unlocked or open. With spring and summer warm weather approaching, people tend to leave garages open, vehicle windows partially rolled down, windows open, patio doors open, etc. and these are all areas of entry to homes and vehicles. You can greatly reduce the odds of a break-in by locking up and securing doors. When you delay or deter entry to a burglar, most will move on to weaker, easier targets.
