Things that go “Bump” in the night

This is statistically the worst time of year for burglaries, with domestic damage skyrocketing up by an eye-watering 160%!

So here is a few seasonal ‘security top tips’:

  1. Ensure you lock your doors and windows when going out for the evening. A shocking 20% of us admit to leaving our front doors unlocked and/or upstairs windows open therefore making us vulnerable to theft.
  2. To prevent unsolicited ‘tricks’ this Halloween season, invest in a letter plate restrictor which will stop thieves from fishing keys or accessing the door lock.
  3. If you don’t want to be disturbed by Little Witches and Devils this Halloween, put up a preventative ‘No Trick or Treaters’ sign on your front door. These are available from most local police constabularies but we’re sure even an easily readable hand written note would suffice.
  4. DO NOT share your plans for the festivities on social media until AFTER the event. Burglars are more and more frequently using social media as a source of information to target properties that they know are empty and vulnerable. 

Whatever you’re doing this Halloween and Bonfire night, have fun and BE SAFE!
