Two words....Lock Door. After more than 20 years of living in the west side of Georgetown as both a student and a homeowner, it is unlocked doors that create easy targets of opportunity. I know that folks don't want to bother with carrying a key but if they would then the folks who check doors to see if they are open to run in and grab a computer, iPad, etc...wouldn't succeed. It is still a crime...but one that a tiny measure of precaution can all but eliminate.
