Home security advice
Look at your home through the eyes of a burglar. If you think your home security looks poor, chances are so will a burglar…are there any places they could break in without being seen? If you have forgotten your keys but can still get in so can a burglar!
Get an alarm – most burglars will avoid properties with alarms.
CCTV – this will act as a deterrent and also help us to identify burglars if you are broken into
Doors – keep them locked even when you are home. Make sure your doors and frames are strong and have five lever mortise deadlocks to all external doors including patio doors.
Windows – Fit window locks with keys to all easy to reach windows. Keep windows locked and remove the keys putting them in a safe place out of sight.
Gates and sheds – make sure they are in good condition and locked to make it harder for offenders to break them open. Ladders can be taken from insecure sheds and used to help offenders climb into upstairs windows.
Vehicles – make sure your vehicles are locked and parked in garages and driveways where possible. Keep keys away from doors and windows where they can be seen and potentially taken
