should be fitted a 3rd of the way down the
door. (TS 007)

Making targets more resistent to attack or more difficult to remove or damage
PIR (Passive Infra-Red) are inexpensive
and effective

Good lighting can put off or draw


attention to a thief but only when you are
over looked.

Note:
Dusk till Dawn lighting provides a constant deterrent
this has been proved to be more effective.
Problems with PIR sensors are:
they can be set off by animals.
people assume any activation is accidental and ignore
it.
The sensors can be turned or damaged to prevent
activation

Consider fitting trellis to the top of the fence in order to


deter people from using the road sign to climb over

A secure gate but entry can still be gained via the


neighbours side. Advise the neighbour to take similar
security precautions or place fencing along the top of
your wall

The hedging should be cut back in order to prevent people


from hiding along the path. The public are then more likely to
use it, which in turn would give more informal/natural
surveillance to the premises that are adjacent to it

No hedges or fencing allows for good informal and natural


surveillance from neighbours, passing motorists and
members of the public. A clearly defined border between
private and public property

The caravan is obstructing the view of the front of the


premises. This would allow a potential burglar the
opportunity to gain entry without being observed.

Bins and other items left next to windows can and


will be used as climbing aids in order to gain
entry. They should be secured to a wall or other
area away from the building to prevent them
from being moved or used for this.

Any gaps in hedging should be repaired in this


case, any potential burglar has a good view of the
shed and greenhouse (tools to aid entry).

cancel any milk or newspaper deliveries

the home while theyre away
Fit timer switches to some internal lights and a

Securing valuables
A safe securely fixed to a wall and/or the floor reduces
the likelihood of important documents or other items
being stolen
Property marking and photographing valuables will
help deter burglars and assist police in identifying lost
or stolen property

Protecting your valuables


Marking things like jewelery or antiques is
difficult and could reduce their value.
Photograph each item, preferably in colour,
paying special attention to any distinguishing
marks.
Take the photograph against a plain background
and include a ruler to give an idea of size.

Property Marking
Why mark or register property?
Marked or registered property is:
easy to identify

difficult to sell

if stolen or lost it can be returned to its


rightful owner when recovered

Methods of Marking
Engraving Or Etching
UV Pen
UV liquids containing small metallic chips
Ceramic Marking Pens
Metal Punching
