During the warmer summer months, always ensure you lock your front and back doors whether you are in the house or not, to protect from opportunist burglars. Do not leave doors/ windows open when you go upstairs. Remember, doors that are closed (but not locked) still pose a risk.
When you’re out, use window locks and set burglar alarms if they are fitted.
In addition, use a UV marker pen/engraver to postcode all valuable property with your home address and include your house number. Free advice is available from your local police crime reduction officer. Personal possessions can be registered free on: www.immobilise.com.
