You can take pre­cau­tions against crime if you are go­ing on hol­i­days soon. Let your neigh­bours know, and pro­vide them with dates and emer­gency con­tact de­tails. They can put out your rub­bish. Are you reg­is­tered with the Va­cant Premises Ad­vice page? Make sure doors and win­dows lock se­curely, and have you ar­ranged for mail to be held, redi­rected by your post of­fice, or asked a neigh­bour to col­lect your mail for you? Have your de­liv­er­ies can­celled. House keys should be left with a trusted friend or neigh­bour. Some­one should be or­gan­ised to cut your lawn and wa­ter your gar­den, and your gar­den tools and lad­ders should be locked away. The ring vol­ume on your tele­phone should be down, and con­sider ask­ing neigh­bours to park in your drive­way. - Se­nior Sergeant Haydn Far­row
