Advice about home security is in this
Checklist. Take a few minutes to review the security in your home. Most domestic security issues can be improved quickly and cheaply, and will put your mind at rest. Complete the security.

You may want to check your own security and consider the following advice
  • Keep your doors and windows locked at all times.
  • Remove all keys from locks.
  • Keep keys in a safe place out of view.                                 
  • Keep valuables out of sight.
  • Keep side gates locked. 
  • Keep sheds and garages locked.
  • Keep bins, ladders and tools locked away.
  • Make your boundaries difficult or impossible to climb over.
  • Make your house look and feels like someone is home at all times.
  • If your house is empty after dark, leave a light on or set a timer – and even leave a radio on.
  • Security mark your property - security mark high-value belongings such as laptops, tablets, smartphone and games consoles using UV pens, and make sure you register them on Immobilise. This can help police to return any items that are stolen to their rightful owners.
