Christmas day is only a few days away and I hope you all have a lovely time but I would like to remind you about crucial burglary crime prevention advice.
You are more likely to be burgled if your property is unoccupied, security is weak and the burglar thinks they will not be seen/get caught
  • Keep valuable items out of view
  • Do not leave keys under doormats, or in easily accessible places
  • Keep any keys out of view and in a secure place
  • Keep tools and ladders in a secure place. They may use your own equipment to break in
  • Do not obstruct visibility of your house, as it will be easier for burglars to work unobserved.
  • Hide financial documents

A lot of burglars will target empty homes as they are the easier targets
  • Do not advertise your absence
  • Use timer switches to switch on lights and other appliances
  • Get a friend or neighbour to collect your post, draw your curtains, park in your drive and make your home look lived in
