Secure Your Property

Residents are reminded to secure their property and vehicles following a spate of burglaries and theft from motor vehicles in the Rochford district over the weekend. During two of the burglaries, motor vehicles were stolen after the keys were taken. Most burglaries tend to be opportunistic, as opposed to planned, as burglars usually choose to burgle houses that have little or no visible security. Follow our 5 simple steps to reduce the chances of you being a victim of crime:

1. Lock all windows and doors, ensure they are doubled locked and keys removed and kept out of sight. Remember Lift > Lock > Remove.

2. Keep bins and garden furniture away from side gates or fences - lock them up or away in a shed or garage.

3. Keep your valuables out of sight – this is particularly important for car keys. Close curtains and blinds.

4. Use internal lighting effectively, invest in some timers or a 'fake tv' light to give the impression somebody is at home.

5. If you have an alarm and / or CCTV make sure it is active and functioning, even if you are at home in bed. They are proven to be effective deterrents.
