PUTTING THE HEAT ON SE­CU­RITY

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

WITH spring and sum­mer on the hori­zon, res­i­dents should take time to se­cure their homes and con­sider se­cu­rity screens and all meth­ods to stop crim­i­nals get­ting into their homes in warmer months. Peo­ple like to leave win­dows, doors and bal­conies open in sum­mer. These are an in­vi­ta­tion to crim­i­nals to gain en­try and steal. Those with bal­conies and ve­ran­das should re­move valu­able items. - Se­nior Sergeant Julie Fo­ley NED­LANDS
