DON'T LET THIEVES STEAL YOUR CHRISTMAS!

Donít let thieves steal your Christmas!

Thieves know that over Christmas there will be high value presents or increased amounts of money in your house.

Keep your home secure - lock all windows and doors, donít leave gifts in view of the windows and use timer switches to turn your lights on when out. You can also purchase devices such as ĎFake TVí devices that simulate and project the same lighting effects as when you are watching your television. This gives the impression that the occupants of the property are at home and watching a television.

If you are going away for Christmas remember to set your house alarm if you have one, cancel any deliveries and ask a neighbour or friend you trust to keep an eye out while youíre away. Lock your garden gates and side entrances and do not leave tools lying around in the garden which could be used to break into your home.

If you are away from home over the festive period or even just out and about, be careful about what you say on social networking sites Ė donít let thieves know your house will be empty. Think before you post photos of your Christmas night out online. What may seem funny in private could embarrass or humiliate someone in public. If in doubt, donít click. Remember, what goes online stays online!

If youíre having a house party with lots of guests, it can be all too easy for a thief to slip in unnoticed. Make sure you know everyone who is there. If youíre going to a party, donít let anyone tailgate you into a house or through a secured communal entry door who may not be a guest.

Protect any gifts youíve bought for your friends and family. Get them to register mobile phones, tablets, laptops and cameras at www.immobilise.com. Donít give them a good quality bike without giving them a good quality lock, and register bikes at www.BikeRegister.com.

Remember! Do not leave the empty boxes of Christmas presents outside your home before bin collection day! Doing this will advertise to would be burglars all the nice, new and expensive items you now have inside your home. Wait until it is actually collection day before placing empty boxes by your bin for collection.
