Some tips to consider when you're planning on traveling: Tips for safe summer travels: your cybersecurity checklist (https://blog.malwarebytes.com/security-world/2018/06/tips-safe-summer-travels-cybersecurity-checklist/)

I frequently see social media posts where people do not follow the "Do not announce the dates of your upcoming travel plans on social media." tip.  It is a nice invitation to thieves that you will be away.  The police department I live in has a nice service.  Let them know when you will be away and they will schedule house checks:

A house check includes an officer walking the perimeter of your house while you are away and checking the windows and doors to ensure that they are locked.

Our sheriff's office provides residents with the option of House Checks or Close Patrols.  A house check involves a deputy physically inspecting all doors and windows to ensure the security of the home. A close patrol puts deputies in your neighborhood to view the property from the road and provide extra patrols in the area.  Both are free.
