Sevenoaks Neighbourhood Police crime prevention advice
Sevenoaks Neighbourhood Policing Team advice
for improving the security of homes, garages and outbuildings:
• How Secure are your Home, Shed and Garage? Are all locks and windows in good repair?
• Dispose of packaging carefully so as not to advertise any new purchases
• Check the ID of callers
• Use timer switches to make your home look occupied
• Lock windows & doors when you go out or go to bed (keep keys safe in case of emergency)
• Avoid leaving valuables on display, do not leave car keys within reach of letterboxes
• Use chains to secure wheelie bins & ladders when not in use - they could be used as climbing aids
• Install shed alarms and security lights wherever possible
• Security mark your garden equipment and power tools
• Lock away all tools after use - they could be stolen or used to break into your home
• Defensive Planting- Consider planting prickly plants, bushes and shrubs around vulnerable areas such as windows, fences and boundaries
• Keep garage doors closed at all times- Do not advertise the contents to potential criminals
• Fit wire mesh on the inside of window frames in sheds and garages
