THE Term 1 school hol­i­days are tra­di­tion­ally the most pop­u­lar for fam­i­lies to leave the com­forts of home for a camp­ing trip some­where in this lovely state of ours. Un­for­tu­nately, it is also the time when crooks come out to break in and steal your valu­able prop­erty. Crooks are usu­ally a pretty lazy lot, so the more you do to de­ter them in the first place, the bet­ter. Some re­ally good tips are: di­vert your mail or have some­one col­lect it; have in­te­rior lights and TVs on timers to come on at night; and tell your neigh­bours you are away and leave them a spare key if you know them well.
