Police advice on security of your home this summer

Hertfordshire Constabulary is reminding residents that leaving windows or doors open, to keep the home cool as the weather warms up, can offer opportunities to criminals.

Whilst the number of burglaries has remained low this year, the lure of insecure doors, windows and out-buildings can encourage opportunistic thieves.

 There is a great deal that residents can do themselves to reduce the risk of their property and home being targeted:

  • Check that all ground floor windows and doors are closed and locked when you are in the back garden, leave the house or go to bed. Upstairs windows should be closed and locked when the house is unoccupied
  • PVCu doors can only be properly locked by lifting the handle and using the key
  • Car and house keys should be kept out of sight. Don’t leave them on display on window sills, in porches, hallways or kitchens
  • If you are away overnight or on holiday, use timer switches indoors to turn lights on and off, giving your home a ‘lived-in’ look
  • A good quality alarm and external dusk till dawn low energy lighting, fitted near doors and other entry points, are excellent deterrents
  • Register your valuables on the free database www.immobilise.com - it is quick and easy to do and can help police return them to you if they are lost or stolen. It also helps police to prove that property found in a suspect’s possession is stolen.

For comprehensive crime prevention advice visit our website at www.herts.police.uk or contact your local team via the non-emergency number 101. You can also use this non-emergency number to report suspicious activity, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
