Secure sheds and garages
Think about what you have stored in your garage and ensure you've secured it properly. Items such as garden tools can be attractive to thieves – plus the Metropolitan Police warn that thieves will often go to your shed first to find tools to break into your home.
Try security cameras
If you want to add an extra level of security to your home, security cameras are a great way of monitoring activity, alerting you to any suspicious goings-on and even pre-empting break-ins.
