Think WIDEN to Prevent Burglary
Nearly two-thirds (65%)* of us are worried about our home being broken into - if this is something that keeps you awake at night then think WIDEN ... these are simple, proven measures we can all take to halve our chances of being burgled :-
Windows locked when not in use
Interior lights on a timer when out
Doors double or dead-locked
Exterior lights on a sensor
Neighbours keeping an eye out
John Hayward-Cripps, CEO of Neighbourhood Watch Network, said ‘We know that by securing your home’s windows, interior, doors, exterior and keeping an eye out for neighbours, we can all give ourselves the best chance of preventing burglary.
