Tough economic times can lead to increases in the rates of theft and burglary. Police are keen to remind householders of some simple measures that can help to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim:

  • Keep Doors locked, even when you are in the house
  • Keep garden tools locked away to avoid them being used to force a door, or window
  • Don't leave out anything that can be used as a climbing aid, either to reach a window or into a neighbour's garden
  • Keep hallways clear of valuables like vehicle keys, handbags and laptops where they may be seen
  • Use timers and lights to help your property to look occupied from dusk
  • Fit PIR-activated security lights that will switch on when approached *
  • Consider planting spiny plants to make access to vulnerable areas of your property much more challenging for potential intruders
  • Report suspicious activity in neighbour's gardens

* local electricians are listed on our SERVICES page, or in 'Go Local' magazine;
or telephone 01844 290 244.
