Security Tips

Over 50% of thieves enter through windows.

Always make sure that your bathroom window is closed or locked. This is the window that people usually don't pay attention to because it is so small, but it's just the perfect opportunity for burglars.

The best deterrent is being prepared. Make it difficult to get in.

  • Make sure all doors and windows are locked.
  • Install deadlocks on all doors.
  • Change locks or cylinders when you move into a new home.
  • Never give keys to a workman, except for your locksmith of course!
  • Install key operated window locks.
  • Have good exterior lighting under eaves.
  • Don't leave ladders and tools lying around, or in an unlocked toolshed - padlock it.

Dont be victim to neighbourhood crime!

  • Photograph your paintings, antiques and other valuables.
  • Don't let unauthorised people in.
  • Make a note of the serial number of all your appliances.
  • Have valuables engraved with your driver's license number.
  • Don't put identification on a key ring.
  • Never leave notes on your door.
  • Install a door viewer to check unexpected visitors.
