LOCK YOUR DOORS
Now that the winter nights are starting to pull in, it’s even more important to make sure that you keep those doors locked.
Did you know roughly 30% of burglars enter a home through an unlocked door or window?
The majority of homeowners don’t lock their doors once they’ve entered their home. By keeping your door unlocked you are asking for your possessions to be taken through sneak-in burglarys where an offender will sneak-in through opened doors and make away with light and expensive items.
Back in January 2016, police in Coventry went on a burglar patrol, to see how many homes were left unlocked. A significant 25% of owners had left their home unsecure with their doors and windows open.
“Another house left open, owner advised, that's 6 in half hour!! Stop making life easy for thieves”
Always remember to lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house, even when you’re in the garden. If you don’t, you may as well have a sign outside telling everyone to take your belongings!
