|The Hutchins Police Department offers a free service called a Home Security Assessment. The assessment focuses on how a potential burglar, prowler, ex-spouse, etc. may gain unlawful entry into someone's house and how to slow down that process. While the assessment is intended to make it more difficult, more time consuming and noisier to gain entry, it is in no way construed as to make anyone's house "burglar proof".
The assessment usually takes about one to one and a half hours to do. Some of the areas covered include interior/exterior lighting, landscaping, fencing, doors, windows and window coverings, alarm systems, 911, garage burglaries, and so forth. All adult family members are encouraged to attend. Assessments are scheduled at times which are convenient to the homeowner, it is preferred that both spouses be home during the assessment.
