How do burglars see your home?

Alert message sent 08/04/2019 12:36:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


With lighter evenings and the daffodils in bloom, now is the time to Spring into Action and review your home security.
 
The best way of doing this is to look at your property through the eyes of a burglar. Think about how you would break in if you locked yourself out. You may be surprised at how easy it would be.
 
To get started, simply download your FREE Home Security Guide from the Thames Valley Police website here: https://www.thamesvalley.police.uk/police-forces/thames-valley-police/areas/advice/home-security-guide/
 
The guide contains lots of hints and tips including:
  • A range of physical and digital security measures to protect your home
  • How to avoid invalidating your home insurance through poor security
  • A handy checklist for when you go away.     
Being burgled is a traumatic experience. It’s not just the financial cost of replacing stolen items, but also the emotional impact of feeling violated after a stranger has been in your home.

In this short video, Jennifer and Sam talk about how they were affected after their home was burgled. You can watch the video on the Thames Valley Police YouTube channel here:

By working together we can build community resilience to deter burglars from targeting homes in the area.
