BURGLARY ADVICE

With the darker nights setting in we would like to remind you to keep your house secure and lit up!

When you leave your home look back and think are there places where a burglar could break into your home without being seen? How would you get in if you had forgotten your keys? If you could get inside, so could a burglar.

Key advice for Bracknell and Wokingham

Below is lots of crime prevention advice but here are the top bits the Bracknell and Wokingham Team would like you to know.

 
During the winter

Windows and doors security

Keeping keys safe

Security outside your home

Living in a flat or shared housing

Going on holiday

Marking your property

Below are some examples of how you can mark or register your property to ensure it is returned to you if it is ever stolen.

Ultraviolet or invisible marking

It can only be seen by an ultraviolet lamp, although it does fade over time and can be washed off eventually.

Permanent marking

Suitable for hard surfaces by engraving or etching.

Tracking for laptops and smartphones

These can now be traced if stolen by using online tracking software, which is usually free. Search online and register your laptop or phone.

Know your IMEI number.

Intruder alarms

Be a good neighbour

If you see anyone acting suspiciously in your neighbourhood, call the police on 101 or, in an emergency, 999.
