We know that the lockdown means lots of people are holidaying at home this year.
Hopefully the weather will be great and you can enjoy barbeques, bike rides, day trips, picnics and even a dip in the paddling pool.
We have a few tips for you to prevent burglary so please take a moment to read them. We don’t want anything to ruin your staycation!
One third of burglars enter houses by open windows and doors so if you are in the back garden, lock the windows and doors at the front of the house.
- Remember to lock all windows and doors before going out for a day trip
- If you’re lucky enough to be going away somewhere – ask a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your house, cancel any regular deliveries and lock up before you leave.
- If you’re gardening don’t forget to padlock your shed after use, many burglars look in sheds for items to help them break into houses.
- If you have a few spare minutes tour our virtual crime scene for extra help and advice
Have a great holiday at home!
