You know what they say...An apple a day keeps the doctor away.  What about a porch light to keep burglars away? As a home-owner, I often worry about security.  Any noise I hear overnight has me concerned.

Pasco Police and Franklin PUD want you to be safe in your homes.  They advise keeping your home well lit. Burglars do pay attention to when you turn on lights at your home.

Some people feel safer with a home security system in place. There are a number of systems and services to choose from.  Today, of course, you can hook up your own cameras.  Everything from motion detector lights, video doorbells, to keyless electronic door locks, there are many security options for homes and apartments.

According to, always make sure your doors are locked, windows closed, and alarms are activated.
