Home Security and Personal Security Tips



One of the most feared crimes is burglary. The threat of being a victim in your own home is bad enough but to be subjected to a crime a second or third time simply increases the fear of householders in an area. The quiet enjoyment of community life is ruined. Most householders and car owners have at some time felt the fear of crime, with the elderly and vulnerable most at risk. It makes sense to take steps to tackle crime in an effective way by reducing and preventing crime before it can happen. Home security is the best way to reduce your chances of being burgled. A lot of burglaries are spur of the moment, as a burglar may see an open window or other easy point of entry and take their chance. Basic tips: Visible burglar alarms , good lighting, and carefully directed and limited security lighting can act as deterrents. But make sure that lights don't disturb your neighbours, and that alarms turn off after 20 minutes. Fitting a 'spy hole' allows you to see who is at the door. Having a door chain means you can open the door a little way to talk to them. Make sure that any improvements you make don't stop you from getting out of your house as quickly as possible if there is a fire. Spending money on security measures can seem daunting, but it is a good investment, will last a long time and can add value to your property. Contact your council or local police for help. They may be able to advise you on the best measures to protect your property, and may even have grants to help cover the cost. Securing your property will make you safer in your home, and make your home and your belongings safer while you are out.

,b>Older People Older people may feel more vulnerable to some crimes, but are actually less likely to become victims. A few simple steps can also help reduce your risk of crime. Think about getting a personal alarm to use if you trip or fall at home. Fit door chains and spy holes, or ask the council to help you if you own your home. Many councils have security schemes that are aimed at older or more vulnerable people. You could ask them for advice.

Car Security Most car thefts are carried out by opportunists and can be deterred. Car crime affects everybody living in an area and be reduced with some simple measures: Don't leave valuable items on display Do use steering wheel or hand brake locks to prevent theft of your vehicle - especially if your car is an older model and does not have an immobiliser fitted. If possible, park in a busy well lit area.
