SUFFOLK POLICE - HOME SECURITY ADVICE

Please take a few moments to review your home security.

Keep all doors locked, even when you are at home.

Shut windows when you are not in the room.

Remove keys from the locks and keep them out of sight. Make sure you have a fire exit plan so everyone can get out safely in an emergency.

Have one or more lights on a timer all the time. That way your home will be lit in the same way every evening, making it more difficult to tell if someone is at home or not.

Avoid keeping valuable jewellery in the master bedroom and never keep quantities of cash at home.

If you hear or see anything suspicious call the police immediately. Please don't assume someone else will do it.

Apply the same security to your property if it is under renovation or unoccupied, especially if you store tools and equipment in the house. Also consider an alarm and/or CCTV that you can view remotely from your phone.
