How can the Public help?
Please remain vigilant. Did something similar happen to you? Please check the security of your property boundary together with rear doors, windows and side entrances.
Has anything been interfered with?
- Put prickly hedging around the perimeter of your garden which will make access to your property more difficult
- Research confirms that intruder alarms reduce the risk of a burglary. Consider installing one
- It is important to make a home look occupied when it isn’t! Lighting can help. (timer switches Fake TV light etc)
- Always fully lock doors and windows when you go out. Importantly, side gates must be secure as this is usually the means of entry to a rear door or window.
- Use an insurance rated safe, which can be used to store spare keys, cash and expensive jewellery
- Install outside lighting and CCTV
