What opportunities do Burglars look for?
- High front boundary
- Paved driveway and path
- Low side and rear boundaries
- No intruder alarm
- Recessed, insecure side gate
- No security lights
- Wheelie bin in front of side gate
- Insecure garage doors and windows
- Valuables not protected and on view
Taking just a few steps can make a big difference in keeping your home safe from burglary. Here are a few tips:
Doors and Windows.
Lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house, even when you’re just out in the garden, remembering to double-lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn key)
Hide all keys, including car keys, out of sight and away from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through the letterbox)
Install a visual burglar alarm (as part of a suite of prevention measures – a burglar alarm on its own will not prevent entry to your home)
Installing good outside lighting can make all the difference. It alerts both yourselves and your neighbours.
Get a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property
Get a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property
Radios or lights
Leave radios or lights in your house on a timer to make the property appear occupied
Make sure the fences around your garden are in good condition
Secure bikes at home by locking them to an immoveable object inside a locked shed or garage
Keep ladders and tools stored away; don’t leave them outside where they could be used to break into your home
Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property
Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property i.e. trim high hedges
