What is your security like?

Precautionary measures to prevent YOU from becoming a victim of crime.

 Keep your shed/garage in good condition

 Fit a closed shackle padlock to the door. Fittings should be bolted through the door and any screws concealed.

 Fit grills or mesh to the windows

 Invest in an alarm
Once you have improved the physical security of your shed,/garage  it is important to make everything inside it secure. Tools and equipment could be used to force entry into your home, causing you even more expense.

Make sure:
Large items such as bicycles are chained together. It is much more difficult for a thief to carry away a lot of large heavy items all at once.

Ladders are locked to a secure fixture in the shed or garage so they cannot be used to reach any top floor windows of your house.

Your valuables should be marked with your postcode or smart water

In an emergency, for example where life is in danger or a crime is in progress please call 999.
