Implementing these simple safety tips in your home today is imperative, guys. The last home invasion Rockford Police responded to on Melrose Street occurred while the parents and their two children were sleeping in their beds and that is terrifying to me.

I will never take for granted that I live in a safe, quiet neighborhood ever again. Thank goodness I have a security system!
