Are you planning on heading out to enjoy the festivities, finishing last minute shopping, going away for the weekend or doing jobs around the home? No matter your plans, SA Police have a few simple tips to help ensure you are covered and your house is secure.
You don’t have to go to the extremes of wrapping up your home to make it secure.
Simply locking doors and windows is a great place to start.
There are some other practical steps you can take to help avoid becoming a victim of a house break, but there are also a number of less obvious tips police recommend you consider.
Practical tips include:
Keeping all doors and windows locked when leaving the home is a great place to start.
BUT also consider keeping them locked when you are home, even if simply gardening.
AND when locking up, remove the key and store in a safe location out of view.
FINALLY, speaking of keys, where do you store your spare key? Better options exist than under that pot!
