Protect your home from Burglary

Alert message sent 07/01/2020 11:20:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Please be aware that at this time of year we do see an increase in Burglaries.
Here are some ways that you can protect your home:
  •  Install Security Lighting
  • Ensure that doors and windows are locked at all times, even when you are at home.
  • If possible install CCTV or intruder alarms
  • Ensure your dustbins are chained up or put away as these can be used to get access to your property
  • Use segment timers if going away or out for the night
  • Ensure hedges and trees are kept trimmed as they can give cover to burglars
  • Consider talking to your neighbours about setting up a neighbourhood watch group
If you would like further information about Crime Prevention then please refer to
