Tips and Things to Remember:
During winter months please do use timers on lights and talk radio stations so that your house looks occupied, even if you are actually out or away. Let neighbours know if you are going away and look after each other’s property if you can.
During summer months make sure you don’t leave windows open or doors unlocked or valuables, keys or money visible from doors or windows. Criminals take advantage of temptation and opportunity. Tidy up garden tools in case they are used to break into the house, shed or garage.
When leaving your car parked anywhere do make sure you don’t leave coats and bags temptingly on the back seat. Put your satnav out of sight and don’t leave mobile phones unattended.
Personal safety is important too: wear bright clothing if you are walking when the light is low or weather is bad, be aware of what is going on around you and help friends and young people to stay safe if they are drinking, travelling on their own, or visiting places they aren’t used to.
