Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

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.
