Kent Against Burglary

Most of us lock our homes before going out or going to bed, but do you also:

•   use timer switches on lights and radios to make it look like you’re home?

•   store car keys and cash/handbags somewhere safe and out of sight?

•   security-mark and photograph important items to help identify them if needed?

•   use a safe to store gold jewellery  – or better still, a safety deposit box at your bank?

Burglars will seek out an opportunity if they can. Let’s work together to limit their chances.For more tips to keep your home and important items safe, visit, find us on Facebook or follow @kent_police on Twitter.
