Going away on holiday

Make your home look like someone is living in it:
• Ensure that windows, doors and gates are closed and locked correctly.

• Use automatic timer-switches to turn your lights and radios on when it goes dark also consider “Fake TV”.

• If you have an intruder alarm make sure that you set it before leaving and ensure that your neighbours know who the keyholders are.

• Cancel any newspaper or milk deliveries

• Use the Royal Mail’s ‘keepsafe’ service – they keep your mail for up to 2 months while you’re away. Mail sitting on your doorstep is a sign that you are away

• Trusted neighbours may be able to help you by collecting your post, opening and closing curtains and they could park their car on your driveway

• Avoid discussing holiday plans on public social networking sites – burglars can use any information you post on there to their advantage – I would add to this watch what you are posting while you are away too or you may find you are giving useful information that the burglar or fraudster may use.

Most of this was taken from the Police UK website where you can find lots of useful advice and details of crimes in your area.
