MAKE YOUR HOME SAFE AS A CASTLE
If you’re on holiday, arrange for mail to be held by Australia Post or collected daily by someone while you’re away. Keep doors and windows locked at all times. Keep valuable items out of sight. Do not leave spare keys hidden outside – leave them with a neighbour, friend or relative. Keep trees and shrubs trimmed to increase visibility from the street. Be mindful of posting on social media. Saying you are on holiday suggests you aren’t home.
