36% of all burglaries are crimes of opportunity, where burglars let themselves in through unlocked doors or windows.
You are ten times more likely to be burgled if you don’t have basic security - even something as simple as putting strong locks on your doors and windows will keep your house much safer.
Burglary has fallen by nearly 60% since 1995, but criminals are opportunists who will take advantage of any chance to steal from you, so you should remain alert.
Always remove all keys from inside locks, and keep them out of sight and in a safe place
Fit sturdy deadlocks (British Standard BS3621) to all doors
Make sure your doors and frames are strong and in good condition - wood doors should be at least 44mm thick
Mark your property - having it marked helps police verify it's been stolen
Fit a door chain or bar and door viewer (spy-hole), and use them.
Never leave a spare key in a convenient hiding place such as under the doormat, in a flowerpot or behind a loose brick - thieves know to look there first
When you are out in the evening, leave your lights on and shut the curtains.
Install outside security lighting; if other people can see your property a burglar may think twice.
Keep your tools and ladders securely locked up – a burglar could use them to get into your house.
