There are certain measures you can take to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim yourself, such as:

  • Don’t leave curtains/blinds open, and don’t leave valuables on show.
  • If you are going away, ask a neighbour or friend to check your house regularly.
  • Buy timer switches for lamps and radios to give the impression that someone is home.
  • Install an alarm system and ensure the alarm box is clearly visible.
  • Don’t leave keys in doors – remove them and keep them close at hand but out of sight where you can easily find them in an emergency.
  • Don’t leave your house unattended with windows open and unlocked – even for just a minute.
  • If you are in the garden or upstairs, make sure your downstairs doors and windows are closed.
  • Never leave a key under a doormat or on a string through the letterbox.
