NHW – Keep It Secure

Beware! Burglars only need a gap of 23cm (9″) to get through!

In one third of break-ins burglars get in through a window.

Make sure your doors and windows are secure when you leave your home, even if you’re only going out for a few minutes (even into your garden!).

Burglars steal tools from sheds to break into homes. Make sure your shed is securely locked. Shed alarms are available. A simple ‘Window Alert Alarm -batteries included costs £4.74 from the Safety Supply Co’ online today, this could be all it takes to avert a break-in.

NHW – Warmer Weather Brings Opportunities For Burglars

There is usually a notable correlation each year between when we get the warmer months and opportunistic burglaries where windows and doors have been left open.
Make sure windows are closed fully when leaving your home or even when you are in your garden (if you are fortunate enough to have one!) and make sure your front door is locked.
Sadly some people see this as a window of opportunity to quickly enter homes and take items they can then sell on, often going unnoticed for some time.
Also, homes without basic security features are five times more likely to be burgled than homes with security, therefore our advice is to put in place simple yet effective, precautionary measures to reduce the chances of becoming a victim of burglary. See some security measures here:
