“It doesn’t take long to double-check you’ve locked up your house or car properly and it could save you the hours of stress and upset that come with being burgled.”
Simple steps to deter burglars and car thieves, include:
Lock front and back doors when you are elsewhere in the house or in your back garden
Make sure you lock UPVC doors properly by lifting the handle and turning the key
Make use of your burglar alarm when you are going out or to bed at night
Keep valuables such as laptops, phones and handbags out of sight and away from windows where someone peering in can spot them
Don’t leave valuables on display in your vehicle – take them with you or, if you can’t, at least put them out of sight in the boot
Always lock your vehicle, even if only leaving it unattended for a few moments, and activate the alarm.
