Home security

Tenants are encouraged to keep their homes as secure as possible at all times. The following offers some helpful tips:

  • Always lock the door and close the windows when you go out, even if you’ll only be out for a short time.
  • Use timers for lights and radios if you will be out of the house overnight. They create the impression that someone is at home. It is not recommended to use TVs for this purpose.
  • Keep car and garage keys out of sight in your home.
  • Do not leave window and door keys in their locks.
  • Always draw your curtains at night and make sure valuable items cannot be easily seen from outside.
  • Make sure that garden tools or ladders that could be used to force entry into your home are not left lying around.
  • Neighbourhood Watch and other ‘watch’ schemes are excellent ways for communities to fight burglary.
  • Never let strangers into your home unless they can prove their identity.
  • If possible ask a friend or neighbour to keep an eye on your home whilst you are away. If you notice any suspicious behaviour on your estate please report this to the Police.
