Going on holiday?
As we are in mid-June the Summer holiday season will soon be in full flow, with many people going away, which can lead to an increase in burglaries. If you are going away, I have included some crime prevention advice for you to consider alongside your normal property security.
- Make your home look occupied. For example, using timer switches on lights.
- Ask a trusted neighbour to check on your home and move any post out of sight.
- Cancel milk and newspaper deliveries.
- Try not to arrange any on-line deliveries which might be left outside your property.
- Don’t advertise that you are going away or that you are away on social media.
- If possible, leave a car on the drive/outside your property or ask a neighbour to park their car on the drive/outside your property while you are away.
- If you have a lawn, try, and cut it just before you go away.
- Lock away any valuable items such as pedal bicycles, they may be safer in your home than in a shed.
Please remember we provide lots of advice on our website for keeping you, and your property as safe as possible: https://www.surrey.police.uk/burglary/
