Prevent Burglary

Don’t Give Burglars the Opportunity


Some simple precautions can make a difference in preventing your property being targeted by burglars:

  • Leave a light on in the house or buy a timer switch
  • Net curtains or blinds prevent easy viewing into your home
  • Fit security lighting around the outside of your home
  • Strong and secure locks on doors and windows; include access gates leading to the rear
  • Defensive planting (thorns, bushes) can deter potential offenders
  • Mark all valuable property with either an ultra violet pen or a forensic marking kit, including property in garden sheds and garages
  • Use a padlock on your shed; consider a shed alarm or anti theft screws
