*Keep your doors and windows locked securely at all times even when at home.

Restrict access to the rear of your property.

Consider joining a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.

Be aware of people acting suspiciously or lingering near your home.

Use light timers to make your home appear occupied when you’re out.

Don’t advertise your property to thieves - make sure it can’t be seen through the window.
