We all have our part to play in the fight against burglary. The following quick tips from the Metropolitan Police can help keep your home safe and secure. 

  • 11% of all burglary in London relates to insecure premises, e.g. leaving a door ajar whilst going to see a neighbour, which can entice an opportunist. Please remember to lock your homes, even if you are just leaving for a second. This will keep your home safe. 
  • Parcel theft from communal areas is a very common occurance. Using ‘click and collect’ services is a good way to keep your parcels safe.
  • There are some good deterrants which you can have at the front of your property, such as installing timer lights, parking cars on driveways having gravel pathways and keeping fencing to a low level.
