Please remember that East Hampshire is a safe place to live and has a low number of burglaries. However we always encourage home owners to take precautions: please see below for general advice on how to keep you safe and secure.

Crime Prevention Advice:
- Keep front and back doors locked, even when you’re at home
- Install a burglar alarm with a visible alarm box
- Fit a door chain and spyhole for extra security
- Keep all valuables and keys out of sight and out of reach of doors and windows
- Store high value items in a hidden safe or a bank vault
- Mark your belongings with your postcode and serial numbers using UV pens or forensic marking kits. and
  register them for free with Immobilise
- Record the make, model and serial number for each item – this help us identify stolen property. Take a
  camera phone picture of the product detail stickers.
- Consider external PIR security lighting
- Don’t leave spare keys in obvious places such as under doormats or plant pots
- Keep items that could be used to break into your property such as ladders, tools and wheelie bins stored
  safely away
- Lock side gates to prevent easy access to the rear of the property
- Check fencing regularly to keep it in good repair
- Use pea shingle on driveways or under windows, as it crunches loudly when stepped on
- Trim overgrown hedges and plants to remove hiding places and improve surveillance
- Use a timer switch to make your house look occupied, even when it isn’t
- Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch scheme
- Consider CCTV – Some CCTV, via a smart phone app, can alert you to someone on your premises.
