Alarms best de­ter­rent

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Bur­glary in­ves­ti­ga­tion con­sta­ble Damian Parker has these tips on how to keep prop­erty safe:

Set up or join a Neigh­bour­hood Sup­port Group and ad­ver­tise the fact by dis­play­ing Neigh­bour­hood Sup­port signs and stick­ers.

Keep a per­ma­nent record of your valu­able and/or iden­ti­fi­able prop­erty. Record the make, model and se­rial num­bers; take pho­to­graphs of items like jew­ellery, in­stru­ments and or­na­ments.

Make your prop­erty iden­ti­fi­able; use an en­graver or in­vis­i­ble marker pen. The best thing to write on your prop­erty is your own driver’s li­cence num­ber.

Have your house se­cured with dead­locks and lock­able win­dow stays if pos­si­ble.

A bur­glar alarm is the No 1 bur­glar de­ter­rent.

Ring the po­lice if you see some­body sus­pi­cious.

Look af­ter your neigh­bours.
