How to keep your home safe and less attractive to burglars

The main way to keep your home safe is to make it look less attractive to burglars.

  • Install a visible intruder alarm system, burglars do not want to be seen or heard
  • Don’t leave your keys or ID documents within easy reach of doors, letterboxes or windows.
  • Close and lock all doors and windows.
  • Lock garages and sheds so garden tools and ladders cant be used to break into your home.
  • Keep side gates locked and wheelie bins stored behind them.
  • Use timer switches linked to lights and a radio so it appears that someone is at home.
  • Invest in a safe for your valuables and sentimental items and securely fix it to a solid surface.
  • Install low level ‘dusk till dawn’ lighting to increase visibility and deter burglars.
  • Keep side and rear boundaries high to restrict access and front boundaries low to limit hiding places.
  • Photograph and mark valuables and sentimental items with your postcode and house number/name.
  • Keep your valuables out of sight and windows covered using window blinds.
