Neighbourhood Watch

Now that the darker nights are upon us, Thames Valley Police in Milton Keynes has started its three-month winter burglary operation to combat dwelling burglaries and target offenders during the winter months. Here are their crime prevention tips to help keep your home safe and secure:

  • keep front and back doors locked, even when you’re at home
  • install a burglar alarm with a visible alarm box
  • fit a door chain and spyhole for extra security
  • keep all valuables and keys out of sight and out of reach of doors and windows
  • store high value items in a hidden safe
  • mark your belongings and register them for free with Immobilise
  • fit energy efficient security lighting
  • don’t leave spare keys in obvious places such as under doormats or plant pots
  • keep items that could be used to break into your property such as ladders, tools and wheelie bins stored safely away
  • lock side gates to prevent easy access to the rear of the property
  • check fencing regularly to keep it in good repair
  • use pea shingle on driveways or under windows, as it crunches loudly when stepped on
  • trim overgrown hedges and plants to remove hiding places and improve surveillance
  • use a timer switch to make your house look occupied, even when it isn’t

Property marking

Property should be uniquely marked with your house number and postcode.

Popular ways to do this include visible permanent marking such as painting, etching or CRE-mark, or forensic marking with DNA products. You should also photograph each item and make a note of its details, including any serial or model numbers. This is particularly important with jewellery and collector’s items.

You should also register your property on Immobilise. Anything with a serial number can be registered with Immobilise for free.

Marking your property makes it traceable and more difficult to sell on, making it less attractive to thieves. It also increases the chances of stolen property being reunited with its rightful owner if it’s recovered.
