Going back home or away for reading week? Top tops to come back to a burglary free home:
√ Take all your valuables home.
√ Before leaving home discuss with your flatmates who is staying and who is leaving. Establish a routine of who is locking up and checking the security of the property.
√ Before travelling check whether your garden gates, windows and doors are locked.
√ Use timer switches and schedule them. Community Wardens can supply these.
√ Set the house alarm. If you don’t know the codes? Ask your landlord
√ Put your bicycle in your room- do not leave it outside, even locked!
