Kent Against Burglary
Most of us lock our homes before going out or going to bed, but do you also:
- use timer switches on lights and radios to make it look like you’re home?
- store car keys and cash/handbags somewhere safe and out of sight?
- security-mark and photograph important items to help identify them if needed?
- use a safe to store gold jewellery – or better still, a safety deposit box at your bank?
Burglars will seek out an opportunity if they can. Let’s work together to limit their chances.
