Burglary – SYP Alert

Dear All,

As Government restrictions continue to ease, life beings to look more ‘normal’ and you leave home more and more, please do be vigilant against thieves.

Homes with no security measures in place are five times more likely to be burgled than those with simple security measures.

Follow these simple steps whenever you leave your property. Taking these steps can make a huge difference:
• Lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house, even when you’re out in the garden
• Hide all keys, including car keys out of sight and away from your letterbox
• Install a visual burglar alarm
• Invest in good outside lighting
• Leave radios or lights in your house on a timer to make the property appear occupied
• Secure bikes by locking them to an immoveable object inside a locked shed or garage
• Keep ladders and tools stored away (thieves could use these to try and break-in
• Ensure all fencing is in good condition
• Remove valuables from view.
