Don’t be a Seasonal Statistic
There is an unfortunate Crime trend at this time of year. Burglary Dwelling offences in Warwickshire and across the country tend to increase during the weeks after the clocks go back and British Summer Time ends.
Taking precautions now and buying a few simple security devices to make your home secure is a small price to pay for peace of mind. ‘Window’ and ‘Door Handle’ alarms can be purchased for only a few pounds via the internet as can electric Timers that automatically switch a light on/off at specific times.
Consider leaving lights or the radio on so it looks and sounds like someone is at home, lock all windows in the house and consider fitting locks to the top and bottom of patio doors.
Visible burglar alarms are an obvious deterrent.
Don’t hide keys under doormats or flowerpots as these are the first places burglars will look.
