Tips to consider when you go on holiday:
• Lock your doors and outbuildings such as garages and sheds
• Always close and lock windows – Don’t leave keys in the locks or in view
• Don’t leave any items such as bags, laptops and cash on display
• Set your intruder alarm if you have one
• Leave a light on or set timers
• Let trusted neighbours, family or friends know you’re going away – maybe they can park a car
on your drive while you’re away
• Do you have someone who has a key and can check on your property regularly?
• If you have CCTV check it is working correctly
• Be mindful of what you share on social media
