Chill out in the heat knowing your home is secure

Alert message sent 25/07/2019 12:01:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

The weather is hot , so here’s our top tips to protect your home against burglary:
Fit window opening restrictors to all ground floor and other easily accessible windows. This will allow ventilation while restricting access.

Close and lock all windows and doors, even if just out in the garden.

Remove window and door keys from the locks, store out of reach and away from your letterbox.

Keep valuables out of sight, along with any visible signs including charging cables.

Hide the keys to your vehicle, and if you have a keyless entry, store the fob in a RFID pouch to block the signal.

Also please check on vulnerable or elderly neighbours.
