Residents are advised to take simple crime prevention steps to keep their homes secure.
Lock windows, side gates and garages.
Consider installing CCTV and security alarms.
Use timers for internal lighting and radios to make your home look occupied.
Put bins away so they cannot be used to climb on.
Lock garden tools away securely to stop them being stolen or used to break into your home.
Be careful what you post online and on social media regarding valuables and your movements.
Keep a record of serial numbers relating to your electrical goods and store it somewhere safe, away from the products themselves.
