Advice Securing your home With the day-to-day pressures of work and family life, it’s easy to overlook your home security. Whether it’s late night feeding and nappy changing, or early morning school-runs and dog-walks, there are many of life’s distractions that can dominate your day. In 3 out of 10 burglaries, thieves do not have to use force as they take advantage of opportunities such as unlocked doors, vulnerable windows or even spare keys left in obvious places such as under doormats or plant pots.
