During the warmer weather burglars may well be looking to take advantage of open windows or doors as it offers the easiest opportunity to carry out the crime unnoticed. A building that presents itself as unoccupied or insecure is far more likely to be targeted than one which is properly secured. With the warmer weather now upon us please read the advice below to help prevent becoming a victim of this type of crime:


·        Check your insurance documents for any specific security requirements or upgrades.

·        Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property.

·        Ensure rear fencing is in good repair.

·        Lock all windows and doors, remembering to double lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn key) especially when nobody is home.

·        Keep all keys out of reach and sight from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through letterbox).

·        Do not leave ladders and garden tools in your garden, lock them away in your shed.

·        Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property i.e. trim high hedges.

·        Consider fitting security lighting and a burglar alarm.

·        Mark your property with postcode and house number and register your property for free with

·        Make use of timer switches to make the property appear occupied.

·        Get a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property.

·        Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch scheme.

·        Remove valuables from view of ground floor windows.

·        Store any high value items (i.e. jewellery, passports) in a properly secured safe or bank vault.

Please ensure you are vigilant at all times, calling police to report any suspicious activity, not just around your own property but anything suspicious in your residential area and community. In an emergency use 999 or 101 for non-emergency. It is not too late to report any suspicious activity to police.
