Are tenants required to lock their apartment when they are away from the premises?

My tenant leaves their apartment entry doors (both back and front doors) unlocked whenever they leave the premises. This includes when they are away for the day or for long weekends.
My property is on the main street of a large town six miles from Boston.
Does the law require them to secure their apartment? Not only is their property at risk, but I believe my building is at riak of vandals.
I would alpreciate any comments ln this matter.
Thank you.
