KEEP SCREEN DOORS LOCKED

Comment News (Armadale) - - Street Watch -

I'm no cli­ma­tol­o­gist, nor do I have any sta­tis­ti­cal ev­i­dence to back me up, but in my opin­ion the re­cent win­ter mea­sured 'ex­treme' on the mis­er­able scale. Now that there's the slight­est hint of warmer weather, I like let­ting a lit­tle sun­shine and warm breeze come in through my front fly­screen door. Un­for­tu­nately crooks see an un­locked fly­screen door or open win­dow as an op­por­tu­nity to sneak in and steal your stuff, even when you're at home. Po­lice al­ways see an in­crease in this type of op­por­tunis­tic theft, where crooks get into homes and units through un­locked doors and win­dows, in the warmer months. You can take sim­ple mea­sures, such as en­sur­ing your front screen­door is al­ways locked, even when you're home, to sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce your chance of be­ing a vic­tim of this type of crime. – Sergeant Nathan Tren­berth
