                                               HOUSE BURGLARIES
You can significantly reduce the chance of your being burgled by taking a few simple precautions
Top Ten Tips
  1. Close and lock all doors and windows even if you are only going out for a few minutes.
  2. Leave a light on if it will be dark before you get home. Consider security lights and timers. To a burglar a dark house is an empty house
  3. Keep your valuables out of sight.
  4. Cancel milk or other deliveries if you will be away from home.
  5. Don’t leave car keys near your door, letterbox or windows.
  6. Always check who is at the door. Not sure? Don’t open the door
  7. Set your alarm when going out and at night time. If you do not have an alarm consider installing one.
  8. Ask a neighbour or a friend to check your property and to remove post from the porch/hallway.
  9.  Inform Police if your house is to be vacant for any length of time.
  10. Always keep sheds and outbuildings locked and secure
