Tips to Protect you from Burglary

Police Logo

Most burglars target homes that they think will contain valuables and this generally means cash, electricals, and jewellery.

Here are a few tips on how to protect yourself and valuables:

1.       Improve security, and ensure CCTV and alarms are working properly.

2.       Use a timer switch for indoor lighting.

3.       Keep your jewellery in a safe location, like safe deposit box, while not being used.

4.     Register your jewellery on to help us identify your property if ever stolen.

Remember, a home that looks empty is far more likely to be targeted, so it’s worth making sure your home looks occupied.
