  • Burglars often break in at the rear of properties. Ensure your rear garden is secure at all times with 1.8m perimeter fence/wall/gate and keep all gates locked
  • Make sure the front of your property is easily seen – fences and hedges should not be more than 1 metre high
  • Install dusk to dawn lighting above your front door
  • Keep your doors locked at all times – so many burglars just walk in – don’t make it easy for them!
  • If you’re not in the room, close the window
  • Make sure you’re house looks occupied, leave lights on when you’re out. Use timer switches for when you’re away
  • Security products help to deter and detect crime Get Smart Security With Ring Doorbells, Cams & Security Systems
