According to Home Office statistics, homes with no security measures in place are five times more likely to be burgled than those with simple security measures. Here are some easy steps you can take to help keep your home or business secure and reduce the risk of burglary.
Always lock the door and close the windows when you go out, even if you'll only be out for a short time
All external doors should have 3 locking points
Mortice locks will add considerable strength to your door
Install a visual burglar alarm and outside lighting
Window locks can help to stop people getting in, especially in older windows and windows without double glazing
Install and use deadlocks - they make it harder for thieves to get out again
Patio doors should have special locks fitted to the top and bottom
Don't leave spare keys outside or in a garage or shed
Keep garden sheds and garages locked and think about using a battery-operated alarm
Secure bikes at home by locking them to an immoveable object inside a locked shed or garage
Keep ALL keys (including car and garage keys) out of sight in the house
Don't leave window and door keys in their locks
Always draw your curtains at night and make sure valuable items cannot be easily seen from outside
