  some way as to prevent shattering

  deadbolt lock installed into the frame of the door

  • Door leading from the attached garage should be solid wood
  or metal-clad and protected with a quality keyed door lock 
  and deadbolt

  • Shrubs and bushes should always be trimmed so there is
  no place for someone to hide

  • There should be no dark areas around the house, garage, or
  yard at night that would hide prowlers
