Don’t let a burglar in
This autumn, Thames Valley Police is working with Surrey, Kent and Sussex police forces, reminding everyone to protect themselves from becoming a victim of burglary:
The majority of burglars are opportunistic; they will look for properties where they think they can enter unobserved and ‘work’ undisturbed.
Three simple actions should help deter these types of criminals – Light it, Lock it, List it.
* Install low-wattage timed security lighting that stays on throughout the night.
* Never leave keys in the door, they can assist a burglar when breaking into your house and when leaving.
* Keep your front and back doors shut and locked – even when you are at home.
* Register your property on the Immobilise website
It’s free of charge and can increase your chances of being reunited with your property.
