Top 5 Tips if your going away on Holiday

Alert message sent 12/01/2018 20:38:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Going away on holiday

Burglary is still on a high!

Make your home look like someone is living in it:
  1. Use automatic timer-switches to turn your lights and radios on when it goes dark
  2. Cancel any newspaper or milk deliveries
  3. Use the Royal Mail's 'keepsafe' service - they keep your mail for up to 2 months while you're away. Mail sitting on your doorstep is a sign that you are away
  4. Trusted neighbours may be able to help you by collecting your post, opening and closing curtains and they could park their car on your driveway
  5. Avoid discussing holiday plans on public social networking sites - burglars can use any information you post on there to their advantage
