Christmas Burglary Advice

Alert message sent 21/12/2018 11:40:00

Information sent on behalf of Humberside Police

“With Christmas almost upon us, many residents are thinking of visiting friends and family over the festive period.

Before you embark on your journey, spend a couple of minutes making your house as uninviting as possible for any opportunist burglar.

The majority of burglars want to be:
· In and out of your home, as quickly as possible,
· With best chance of the greatest rewards
· And the least chance of bumping into the householder.

Read our “Quick Guide to home security” and make sure you:

· Don’t have valuables on display through windows by hanging thick nets or using blinds.
· Keep presents hidden until Christmas morning
· Make your house appear occupied with lights and radios on automatic timers.
· Keep doors and windows locked, even when you are at home.

We hope you all have a happy Christmas and a safe New Year”
