The ‘Tip of the Week’- Preventing burglaries. (1) Lock your doors and windows, sounds simple, but the data tells us we not locking our front doors or rear windows. One in three burglaries has been prevented by this simple action. (2) When we are in our homes and gardens we should lock doors and windows that are out of sight. (3) When leaving our homes make sure that the windows and doors are fully secured. Use your security alarm if you have one. Ask a neighbour or friend to check your home if you are going to be away for longer periods. Lock and secure sheds/garages/tools and ladders, these are valuable property and aids to burglars.
