Have a friend roleplay as a burglar
This guy has a cop uncle who shared a valuable tip for us all. If you’re uncertain whether a hiding spot is good enough, have your partner or a trusted friend try and search your home for it. If they can locate it, then you should move it to another spot. Repeat this until they can no longer find it. And consider giving a couple of beers to your friend for their efforts.
Another user commented that having a cop as a neighbor might also be a good deterrent. Even putting up signs that you’re associated with our boys in blue might help prevent burglaries.
