Summer Burglary Campaign 2018

Burglary Campaign

Burglaries often increase during the Summer months, when burglars take advantage of doors and windows being left open.

However, crime prevention doesn't have to cost a lot of money - taking simple measures such as locking your doors and windows, not leaving valuables on display and using your alarm can significantly reduce your chances of being a victim.

Here's some simple steps that everyone can take to improve their home security : -

  • Always lock your doors and windows even when you’re at home
     
  • Always take the key out of the lock and keep it in a safe place - do not leave keys in reach of the letterbox, a cat flap, or on view through a window.
     
  • Make sure items such as car keys, laptops, tablets, phones and cash cannot be seen through a window.
     
  • Do not leave power cables or charger units for laptops and tablets plugged in and on show.
     
  • If you are out, try to make your home look occupied by using a timer switch to control lights.
     
  • Make sure Euro cylinder locks have achieved - TS 007 (3 star rating) or Sold Secure Diamond Standard for lock cylinders (SS312).
     
  • If you have a burglar alarm always remember to switch it on when you leave the house or when you go to bed.
     
  • Why not start a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme in your area?
