During these dark winter nights and over the Christmas holiday season, it makes sense to secure your home. We asked Secured By Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative, to provide us with some practical advice about home security.
SBD works with Police forces, architects, developers and local authority planners around the UK to design out crime in new-build developments at the planning stage using proven crime prevention techniques. These measures include the layout and landscaping, such as to achieve lots of natural surveillance and the absence of alley-ways and hiding places. In addition, SBD seeks to improve the physical security of buildings, such as using doors, windows and locks which meet our police accreditation standards to be sufficiently robust to resist physical attack from opportunist burglars.
We have already written about installing garage and pass doors manufactured and installed by Ballymena business, Garage Door Systems. Many of their products are approved by Secured By Design. Read that article here.
Criminals are known to take advantage of darker evenings to target properties that look unoccupied. In this article we look at some of the practical steps you can take to secure your home and possessions.
