Prevent burglaries over the festive season

christmas-1510392_1280If you’re living in private accommodation, please take note of this advice over the festive season:

  • Make sure that any valuable items are out of sight, or if you are going home then take them with you.
  • Resist putting presents under the tree until Christmas morning.
  • Be ‘box clever’ and don’t leave the boxes from your Christmas presents next to your bins to inform criminals what lovely new valuables you have in your home
  • If you are are going away:
    • try to make the home look occupied by using timer switchers on your lights and draw the curtains
    • make sure newspapers and milk are cancelled
