​1 in 4 burglaries are a result of insecurities.
A burglar can be in and out of your home in minutes, yet it only takes a minute to lock your doors and windows.
• Keep doors and windows locked - even when you are in.
• Keep valuables out of view in case a burglar looks through your door or window.
• Make sure your home is locked if you are in the garden having a BBQ or hanging out the washing.
• Lock garages and sheds. Don’t leave tools and ladders out, they could be used to commit a burglary.
• Make sure you clear your car of valuables and lock it.
• Put packaging for expensive items in the bin or take it to be recycled. Don’t advertise what’s in your house.
Remember it only takes a minute to secure your property. LOCK UP OR LOSE OUT!
