Lock it or Lose it
Lock it or Lose it...
A few tips to improve your home security:
- It only takes a minute to lock your doors and windows to secure your home.
- It only takes a minute to hide valuables out of view.
- It only takes a minute for a burglar to enter your property and steal valuable belongings if your doors or windows are unlocked.
- You should keep doors and windows locked, even when you are in the house and when you get home. Try to change your habit if you don’t lock your door behind you.
- Door chimes and burglar alarms will deter a burglar from entering your property.
- Being a victim of sneak-in burglary can have both emotional and financial effects. High value goods are costly to replace if stolen, and items such as phones and cameras often hold information with sentimental value such as photos, which cannot be replaced.
- Many insurance companies will not pay out if your home has been burgled while insecure.
- Keep doors and windows locked when in the garden having BBQs, gardening, hanging out the washing, etc.
- Don’t leave garden tools or furniture outside, as they can be used by burglars to enter your property.
- Dispose of packaging for expensive items properly; don’t advertise
what is in your house.

"Lock it or Lose it" Message from Gloucester Police
May 15 2014
"Lock it or Lose it" is the message from police in Gloucester after figures showed 36% of homes burgled in April were left insecure.
Of the 76 house breaks last month, 27 were vulnerable to attack because of unlocked doors and other security flaws.
Officers in the city are giving residents crime reduction advice as part of the "Lock it" campaign and hope people will take their home security more seriously as a result.
Sergeant El Lakin said: "The problem has obviously been widespread and has meant opportunist burglars, who have become very wise to it, have simply been trying doors in a number of areas across the city until they come across an insecure door.
"Many of the burglars have got in through unlocked front doors when occupants have been in bed asleep.
"The impact can be devastating and cause huge disruption to people's lives. Insecure doors can also of course void your home insurance.
"We have been working hard to catch offenders - and have made three arrests in recent weeks - but we need people in the community to help themselves.
"The community teams really wish to get the message out to all residents to ‘LOCK IT’ - we need their help to make sure they routinely check doors and windows when leaving their homes and add it to their bedtime routine. We cannot urge you more to take these simple steps to keep homes safe and secure."
Officers will be posting advice on the Twitter hashtag #gloslockit and people are encouraged to look at the crime reduction guidance on special leaflets being distributed across the city.
More advice can be found at the crime reduction pages of www.gloucestershire.police.uk.

As Cliff Richard - Patron of the Golden Oldies charity says;
"Goldies is a smile charity. Goldies is not a choir, but we do use music to encourage people to get out and meet with others and have fun together through singing."
