Alert message sent 19/07/2017 14:58:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

With summer here and the schools about to break up for the holidays, here are some hot tips to keep your home and property secure as temperatures start to sizzle.

At Home

  • Do not leave valuables or car keys by open windows and doors
  • Mark your valuables with your postcode
  • Out enjoying your garden? Lock your doors and close your windows
  • Double lock your doors using the key and make sure your windows are closed even if you are just popping out
  • Do not leave garden tools or ladders easily accessible in your garden and make sure your shed or garage is secure.

Going Away

  • Going on holiday? Make it look like you're still at home
  • Lock all windows and doors, cancel milk and papers
  • Ask someone to keep an eye on your house while you are away
  • Don't advertise that you are going on holiday on social networking sites.
