THINK LIKE A THIEF TO AVOID A THEFT

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

Do you ever think like a thief would? Here is how think­ing like a would-be rob­ber can as­sist you from hav­ing your home bur­gled. Thieves are op­por­tunis­tic and of­ten look for vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties in home se­cu­rity, where they can break in and get out with­out be­ing de­tected – so get that sen­sor light fixed if it’s bro­ken. Make sure you make an ef­fort to keep valu­able items such as mo­biles, elec­tronic tablets and other elec­tronic de­vices out of view through win­dows when you are out. Re­mem­ber to keep you doors and win­dows locked, even when you are at home. Make a spe­cial point of en­sur­ing this is done be­fore leav­ing for work, and be­fore head­ing to bed at night. If you are go­ing to be out in the evening, con­sider leav­ing a ra­dio or in­side light on. – Se­nior Sergeant Matt Sharp
