Please see below crime prevention advice around keeping your home safe.
  • Keep front and back doors locked, even when you’re at home – remembering to double lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn key). Remove all keys from internal doors.
  • Install a wireless doorbell WiFi camera video Intercom system - This will alert you to when someone is at your door - even when you are out.    
  • Install a burglar alarm with a visible alarm box
  • Leave a light when you go out
  • Fit a door chain and spyhole for extra security
  • Keep all valuables and keys out of sight and out of reach of doors and windows
  • Store high value items in a hidden safe
  • Mark your belongings and register them for free with Immobilise
  • Fit energy efficient security lighting
  • Don’t leave spare keys in obvious places such as under doormats or plant pots
  • Keep all keys out of reach and sight from the letter box (a device may be used to hook the keys through the letter box)
  • Keep items that could be used to break into your property such as ladders, tools and wheelie bins stored safely away
  • Lock side gates to prevent easy access to the rear of the property and use closed shackle padlock to secure.   
  • Check fencing regularly to keep it in good repair
  • Use pea shingle on driveways or under windows, as it crunches loudly when stepped on
  • Trim overgrown hedges and plants to remove hiding places and improve surveillance
  • Use a timer switch to make your house look occupied, even when it isn’t
  • Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch scheme
  • Consider leaving a radio on when you leave the property
