Basic security advice

Unfortunately, day time break-ins are on the increase. Burglars are getting more confident and brash and will openly break in to a house in the middle of the day on a residential property.

There is no guarantee that you can do to stop this from happening but there are things you can do to try and protect yourself.

  • Keep all doors and windows locked. Even one that’s are not on the front of your property as many thieves will enter through back gardens.
  • Keep as many internal doors locked as possible, if a burglar manages to enter your property and they come across locked doors inside they do not want to spend time trying to get in so will often leave.
  • Fit CCTV and a house alarm. This will not only capture footage and send out a warning if someone does enter your property, but sometimes it can be enough to stop them from entering in the first place.
