Safety in the Community

castle Making your home your castle… keeping burglars at bay
Make life difficult for the burglar. Most housebreaking crime is opportunity driven. If something looks worth having and there is a window open, then...

In nearly a quarter of burglaries no force is used. Take simple precautions and you can really lower the chance of coming home to find you are a victim of crime.

Not just 999! When to call the police
People living in local communities are always the first to notice something unusual. A terrorist may be targeting your area, or a military base near where you live. Often they leave tell tale signs such as strangers who watch on street corners or unmarked vans which arrive at night. The police, military and civil, are there to check out things like this that look suspect, but they do need to be told about it first.

phone printTelephone and Mail Security
Many of us use phones, especially mobiles, all the time. They are a great way of keeping in touch, especially if you are alone at home with your partner away at sea, but others might be listening, so some care is needed. You may get nuisance calls at home and you need to be a little careful about letters too.
