Stop Burglary and Fires
An easy way to stop thieves (because they seem to appear so often in the game) is to set up Burglar Alarms outside every door in the house. The burglar systems can be found in the buy menu under electronics. That always stops them, guarenteed.
For stopping fires, just put a fire alarm next to things such as fire places, stoves, grills, and other things with open flames. This wont stop the fire, but it will give you a quick response from the fire men.
