Home Security – Summer Holidays

Summer holiday plans may be a little different this year, but if you are planning a ‘staycation’, please take a look at the home security tips below to help prevent you from becoming a victim of crime :

* Shut and lock all windows and doors.

* Keep car and house keys out of reach from windows and doors.

* Set timer switches to turn your lights on for when it gets dark.

* Avoid leaving valuables in plain view e.g. laptops and tablets.

* Set any house alarms.Lock side gates to prevent access to the rear of your property.

* Keep any tools and ladders stored safely away in a locked garage.

* Don’t advertise you are away from home by ‘checking in’ on social media.

* Resist uploading any holiday pictures to social media until you have returned home.
