As the days get shorter it creates opportunities for burglars as there are more hours of darkness and daylight fades earlier in the evening before people get home. With the schools back and holidays over, there are few people around in residential areas during the day. Burglars can often operate unnoticed.
It’s always a good idea to review your security every so often. Is your home properly secure and protected?
Are your locks up to standard? Poor quality locks can be picked in seconds.
Are you closing and securing all windows when you got out?
Have their been any burglaries in your area? That increases the chances of it happening to you.
Fitting an alarm of CCTV is a great deterrent.
