It does not matter if you are naughty or nice, most burglars are opportunists looking for an easy steal from families distracted by the festive period. There have been a large number of reports of break ins even on Christmas day when burglars have unwrapped presents and stolen them straight from beneath the tree. Before you let Santa come down your chimney this Christmas you can use these simple tips to help reduce your risk of burglary.
Lock Up – Whenever you are leaving the house over Christmas, take the time to double check every window and door is locked and secure. A number of burglaries happen when people are too distracted whilst running out the door and forget to lock just one entry. You should also do the same check before you go to bed as burglaries do not just happen when the house is empty.
Remember these tips over the Christmas period so you can ensure your home and possessions are protected. Everyone at Smart wishes you a safe, secure, merry Christmas.
