Thames Valley Police have issued a set of reminders, to help residents avoid having their Christmas spoilt by unwelcome visitors.
There are simple steps we can all take to reduce the chances of being affected by crime.
Burglary and theft can have a devastating effect on victims.
By taking a moment to protect our property we can better ensure a happy holiday period.
How to protect your home and belongings this Christmas:
- Make sure Christmas gifts are not on display in vehicles where they are a temptation to thieves.
- Gifts piled together and on show through the house window or under the Christmas tree are easy pickings in the event of a burglary. It is advisable to store them elsewhere if you can.
- Look after your new belongings and dispose of boxes and rubbish discreetly. Leaving boxes outside your home will advertise the new and valuable items to burglars.
- You can property mark your belongings. Visit Immobilise for more information.
- Vacant homes are a temptation to thieves. Ensure your home is secure.
- Ask a friend or neighbour to pop in for a while at intervals and turn on lights or appliances to make the property look occupied. Alternatively invest in a timer switch to make it look as though someone is home.
- Be cautious when using social media and do not advertise that your home is or will be empty when you are away.
