Quick & Easy Ways to Reduce Your Chances of Being A Victim –
Homes – Keep your doors locked and valuable property away from windows. Keep handbags away from the front door. Don’t leave keys in reach of the letterbox. Don’t leave windows open when you go out - even tiny windows can be used, to hook open another window. Install lighting which can be triggered by movement sensors. Consider CCTV.
Garages / Sheds – Fit strong padlocks and hardware to doors. Keep them locked and the valuable property inside secured to a fixed point. Install lighting which can be triggered by movement sensors.
Vehicles - Keep your car locked and remove all valuable property from your car, including any bags and coats. Pull your car handle to CHECK it’s locked. Thieves have and will, break into cars for bags and coats, due to the possibility they may contain valuables.
Thieves are also searching unlocked vehicles for ANYTHING - including, chargers, loose coins, sunglasses and keys.
Mopeds and Motorbikes – Please put your bike out of sight, if this is not possible, secure it with a thick chain and padlock to something solid.
