North Wales Police would like to offer the following advice to prevent you from becoming a victim of burglary.
How not to make it easy! Always try to make it look as if you are home – either by using timers on lights or asking a friend or neighbour to open and close the curtains for you.
Ladders, wheelie bins and garden tools should be stored out of sight and where possible thread a chain and use a strong padlock as these items could be used to break into your house.These are simple inexpensive steps to putting burglars off.
Protect your valuables by storing them securely and out of sight. Take photographs and keep a list of any sentimental and valuable items. This can prove invaluable in helping police in the event of a burglary. A domestic safe or any security device should be securely fixed to a wall that is built from bricks, concrete blocks or to the floor and placed out of sight.
Any items of value should be property marked by using an ultraviolet pen with your house number and postcode. Mobile phones/computers can be registered through www.immobilise.com.
For free confidential advice on any aspects of security, please call 101 and ask to speak with your Local Policing Team.
If you see or hear anything suspicious, please contact 101 or in an emergency, always dial 999.
