City of Dixon Suggests Safe Answering Machine Practices

A simple holiday safety tip shared by the city of Dixon this weekend.

With many Dixon residents likely traveling out of town for the holidays, the city is suggesting a simple measure to make your home less of a target:

Don't leave telephone answering machine messages such as "You've reached the Taylor's; we're away celebrating the holidays...leave a message." 

Bad guys see this as an invitation to commit crime by breaking into your home.
