Keep Your Home Safe

Newham Police have published a list which aims as a good guide to deter burglars from trying to break into your home. Well done Newham Police.

The list is as follows (with some editing by Mr Bloggy):

  1. Do not leave keys in windows, make sure that all windows are closed and locked – including upstairs ones and small ones.
  2. Don’t leave valuables on show in the ground floor rooms. Close heavy curtains.
  3. Invest in a security system, or even a good fake CCTV camera andproximity lights.
  4. Asian religious symbols on or around the front of the house could give the impression that there may be Asian valuables or Asian Gold in the house.
  5. Having a dog is a deterrent, even a sign saying that one lives there is helpful.
  6. Consider leaving a light and the radio on when going out.
  7. Make sure that all exterior doors are double locked, even if you are only going out for a moment.

Remember our site motto: “Never Be The Victim!”
