Keep your home safe this summer: 
• Always keep doors locked and when you leave a room close and lock the windows
• If your valuables are visible through a window they could tempt a burglar – do not leave items on view
• Get a house alarm fitted to deter burglars
• Register valuables on www.immobilise.com

If you are going away on holiday, think about house security:
1. Use timers to switch lights or a radio on and off to make it look like someone is home
2. Keep windows covered
3. Ask a neighbour to push mail through and keep an eye on the house
4. Ask a neighbour to park their car on your drive to make it look as if you are home
