IT ONLY TAKES A MINUTE ?

Date Published: 12/07/2012

It only takes a minute to lock your doors and windows to secure your home.  

 

·          It only takes a minute to hide valuables out of view.    

·          It only takes a minute for a burglar to enter your property and steal valuable belongings if your doors or windows are unlocked.    

·          You should keep doors and windows locked, even when you are in the house and when you get home. Try to change your habit if you don’t lock your door behind you.    

·          Door chimes and burglar alarms will deter a burglar from entering your property.    

·          ‘Lock up or lose out’.    

·           Being a victim of sneak-in burglary can have both emotional and financial effects. High value goods are costly to replace if stolen, and items such as phones and cameras often hold information with sentimental value such as photos, which cannot be replaced.    

·          Many insurance companies will not pay out if your home has been burgled while insecure.     

·          Keep doors and windows locked when in the garden having BBQs, gardening, hanging out the washing, etc.    

·          Don’t leave garden tools or furniture outside, as they can be used by burglars to enter your property.    

·          Dispose of packaging for expensive items properly; don’t advertise what is in your house.

 

Residents are reminded that if you do wish to report any non emergency police incidents to log the call via - 101 please
