Wanna know how to keep your stuff safe from thieves? Ask the experts.

Learn how to protect your home and valuables from theft at the popular "Keepin' It Real" burglary prevention seminar, co-hosted by the Hollywood-North Park Community Association and Chicago Police Department, 7 p.m., Nov. 19, at Northside College Prep High School, 5501 N. Kedzie Ave.

Actual burglars, participating in an Illinois Department of Corrections work-release program, will talk about their tactics: how they pick their targets, what they're looking for, which rooms they enter first, etc.
