SIMPLE STEPS TO SECURE YOUR PROPERTY
A large number of break-andenter crimes are easily preventable. By introducing a number of simple and inexpensive changes to your home, you can play an active role in reducing the chances of this happening to you. By securing your home, you significantly lower the risk of you and your family becoming victims of crime. I recommend you consider displaying your street number at the front of your house to help emergency services to locate your home, ensure all perimeter fences are in good order and gates are kept closed and locked, and trim trees and shrubs from around doors and windows so as not to provide concealment for intruders.
