Crime Prevention Advice
The most basic home security measure is to simply lock up.

This gets overlooked more often than you think and a surprising number of people leave windows open or forget to lock the door. Don’t make it easy for burglars! 
Take these simple precautions to reduce the risk of becoming   a victim of crime:
Your home
Keep front and back doors locked at all times - even when you're at home.
If you are out in the evening make sure you leave a light on and draw the curtains.
If it's dark before you get home, use timer switches to turn on the lights.
Light up your front door with dusk to dawn lighting - make sure it's visible from the street.
Keep keys and valuables out of sight, and reach, from cat flaps, letterboxes and downstairs doors and windows.
If you have a burglar alarm, use it!

Your car 
Always keep your car locked and close the windows - even if you are only leaving the vehicle for a few moments.
Always remove all items from your vehicle when parked - even an old coat may be enough to tempt a thief.
Ensure when removing your sat nav, that the cradle and suction pad are also removed and any suction marks are wiped away.
Never leave keys in the ignition, not even at a garage when paying for petrol.
Keep keys safe at all times, whether you're out or at home.
