The ‘Tip of the Week’-There are plenty of ways that you can protect your home from being targeted for crime. Don’t leave spare keys outside or in a garage or shed. Keep garden sheds and garages locked and think about a battery operated alarm. Keep garage and car keys out of sight in the house. Don’t leave window and door keys in locks. Always draw your curtains at night and make sure valuable items cannot be seen from outside.
