Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA - In case of a break-in, it's important people come up with a plan on how to handle the situation... and the Kennewick Police Department provides tips on what to do.

Prevention is key - it's crucial people remember to keep their doors and windows locked every day, buy security cameras and alarms for the house, and put lights up outside.

If a situation arises where a homeowner comes face-to-face with a burglar and they feel their life is in danger, they should look for an escape method or try locking themselves in a room. It's also important to leave phone and car keys next to a nightstand in case of an emergency so it will be easy to reach for your phone to call 9-1-1.
