Home Security - Summer Holidays

Alert message sent 30/07/2021 08:51:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

Summer holiday plans may be a little different this year, but if you are planning a 'staycation', please take a look at the home security tips below to help prevent you from becoming a victim of crime:
  • Shut and lock all windows and doors.
  • Keep car and house keys out of reach from windows and doors.
  • Set timer switches to turn your lights on for when it gets dark.
  • Avoid leaving valuables in plain view e.g. laptops and tablets.
  • Set any house alarms.
  • Lock side gates to prevent access to the rear of your property.
  • Keep any tools and ladders stored safely away in a locked garage.
  • Don’t advertise you are away from home by ‘checking in’ on social media.
  • Resist uploading any holiday pictures to social media until you have returned home.
