TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Sierra Vista Police Department is providing a free burglary prevention inspection for residences.

Officials with the department say recent trends reveal an increase in these crimes of opportunity when valuables are left in an unlocked car or are visible through an opened window.

The assessment lasts approximately 45 minutes and inspectors will recommend security tips for the homeowners.

Police suggest hiding valuables and locking car and house doors to help prevent burglaries.

To request an inspection, call the Sierra Vista Police Department at (520) 452-7500 or visit the city website at SierraVistzaAZ.gov and search "security."
