Keeping Your Property Safe and Secure

Top tips for keeping your home safe:

  • Always keep house and car keys away from doors and windows. Store valuables and keys away out of view
  • Always keep your windows and doors locked even when you are in – if you pop upstairs or in the garden make sure the rooms you are not occupying are secure
  • Consider installing movement activated security lights at the front and back of your property or an alarm/CCTV system. If you have these already installed, ensure they are in good working order and are switched on
  • If you have valuable tools and garden equipment in your garage or shed, make sure you keep it locked and fit an inaccessible bolt/lock to your garden gate. Consider fitting locking devices to high value bicycles
  • Try to avoid storing large bulky items, like wheelie bins, near to your property as these can be used to access properties

Be vigilant and report any suspicious activity by telephoning 101, or 999 in an emergency
