Security Tips

Security Tips for Car Owners

  1. Lock the doors and boot, and close all windows every time you leave your car - however briefly even when filling up with petrol.
  2. Take the ignition key out even when the car is parked in your drive or garage and always set the immobiliser. If you don't have an immobiliser consider having one fitted.
  3. Don't leave valuables and other possessions on display. Lock them in the boot. Keep them out of sight even when driving.
  4. Never leave cheque books, credit cards, driving documents and personal correspondence in the car. They can help a thief to sell your car or provide a cover story if stopped by the police.
  5. Remove your radio or cassette player or ensure you have the type with a separate display.
  6. Have the vehicle registration number etched on all the windows.
  7. Park in well-lit, open locations.  

Security Tips for Home Owners

Top Ten Advice Tips from Northamptonshire Police

  1. All exterior doors should be fitted with security deadlocks to British Standards BS 3620. Patio doors should be fitted with locks diagonally opposite - top and bottom.
  2. All ground floor and easily accessed first floor windows should be fitted with locks and always used whilst away from the property.
  3. All keys should be removed from locks and placed in a convenient but obscure place within the house.
  4. Never leave a note to say you are out. Remove all deliveries away from sight. Cancel all papers and milk deliveries whilst you are away for long periods.
  5. Don't give the impression that you are out, use timers on lights if you return after dark and leave a radio on during the day.
  6. Secure all points of access to the rear of the property.
  7. Make sure all tools, ladders etc., are locked away and out of sight, they may be used to gain entry to your property.
  8. Can your house be easily observed by your neighbour or passer by? Join a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme for your street or area.
  9. Consider an intruder alarm - which must comply with British Standards BS 4737.
  10. Mark all your property with the 'Property marking Post Coding' system and display window stickers to the front and rear of your property.

Keeping You Home Secure While You're Away

  1. Cancel all deliveries, milk, newspapers, etc.
  2. Make your house look occupied. Closed curtains during the day time makes it look like no one is at home. put several lights on time switches and leave a radio playing during the day.
  3. Put valuable items out of view. Expensive jewelry should be placed in a safety deposit box.
  4. Lock your garage and shed after putting away your tools so they cannot be used to break into your home. If you have a ladder lock it away.
  5. Don't have your home address on open display on your baggage, put it inside the case.
  6. Make sure you lock all windows and doors. If you have a burglar alarm make sure it is set and tell the police who is holding the keys while you are away.
  7. Cut the just lawns before you go.
  8. Have a neighbour come in to remove your post and put it some where out of sight.
  9. Be careful over who you tell about your holiday, an unguarded comment maybe all a burglar needs.
  10. While on holiday do not give you address to anyone you do not know. If you want to make contact with someone again just swap phone numbers.
