Home Security

Most burglaries are opportunistic.
Always close and lock doors and windows when you go out – even if just for a short time – and when you go to bed at night. Don’t forget doors into garages and conservatories.
Make sure your locks and security measures comply with your insurance requirements.
Join or start a Neighbourhood Watch scheme. Membership of a scheme is a proven deterrent to burglars.
Keep keys, including shed and car keys, in a place where they’re not visible to anyone looking in. Don’t leave keys in the door, and never hide a spare key outside.
Keep valuables hidden and not visible from windows.
Take photographs of your valuable items for insurance purposes and keep them with your policy.
Window locks and visible burglar alarms can act as a deterrent to criminals.
Never leave packaging from new goods visible with your general rubbish. Criminals may see it and target your property.
Draw curtains in the evening and leave your lights on a timer switch if you’re going out.
Never give your keys to anyone you do not know well. Change locks in a new property so that you know exactly who has the keys.
Never keep large amounts of cash in the house.
Consider keeping expensive jewellery, house deeds and other important items in a home safe, anchored to the brick work.
Register valuable items free of charge with, a property register that helps police identify your property and catch criminals.

Consider registering expensive items with a forensic marking company such as SmartWater – .
