It is the most wonderful time of the year once again and whilst we are all relaxing and looking forward to fun and merriment at Christmas, there are also people who are looking forward to it for less wholesome reasons – burglars.
Christmas is a favourite time for burglars to operate – it offers a lot of opportunity from the selection of gifts, like games consoles, Farah menswear from EJ Menswear, expensive jewellery and toys in our homes, to the dark evenings, it is particularly important to make sure you look after your home at this time of the year and be more vigilant when protecting it from burglaries.
One of the best things that you can do is to install a home alarm system. This also works as a great deterrent that will help to prevent burglaries.
Don’t forget your car – never leave gifts and valuables in your car no matter how near your house it is, and if you have a garage use it to store your car in!
It is also good to secure your garden as this is a popular route for burglars who have less chance of being spotted at the back of the house. High fences that are secure and spiky plants will keep your garden safer from intruders.
If you are going to be away around Christmas, make your home look as if someone is in. Get a neighbour to pop in ad out and also put lights on a timer.
