As the temperature goes up, people may be tempted to open their windows and screen doors to cool their homes.
East Lansing Police warn local residents to be careful when leaving their windows open and doors unlocked, but there is a way to stay safe.
Experts say window locks keep people cool and safe. People can purchase locks for a couple bucks at a local hardware store. Locks allow people to open their windows a few inches, but they prevent burglars from lifting the window high enough to break into the home.
