Crime Prevention from Neighbourhood Watch



Some useful crime prevention advice...
Opportunistic burglars chance their luck, trying door handles and garden gates for an easy entry. Don’t make it easy for them; follow our handy tips below:
🏠 Shut all windows and lock them when you are not using the room, out in the garden, at night and when you leave your property
🔑 Lock all front and rear doors at night and when you are out. If you have a UPVC door, remember to lift the handle and lock it with the key
🚗 Put all car keys and other keys out of sight and not in reach of windows and letterboxes. Double check your vehicle is locked too
🔐 Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property. Move bins away from side walls and fences
📱 Register your property on Immobilise, the world’s largest, free, property register. It’s simple to register property such as technology, jewellery, bikes, antiques and collectibles and registering your property could help us reunite you if it’s stolen. Visit www.immobilise.com to get started!
🔦 Mark your property with a forensic marker fluid, such as SelectaDNA or Smart Water. You can even use UV marker pens that are available free of charge from your local neighbourhood police team or Neighbourhood Watch group.
