Security lights are a great way of putting potential shed thieves off.  Burglars don't want to be seen, a security light will be a deterrent to a burglar, however setting up a security light and getting mains power to the unit can be tricky and expensive - this is where the next generation of solar security lights come in.

1. Burglars can be put off by a thorny hedge or prickly plants such as this prickly, but beautiful holly tree . These can also look nice, but can be a real deterrent.


2. A Gravel path is noisy and could draw attention to a burglar. Gravel is one crime prevention technique that is easy to install, effective and can be a true deterrent.

3. When trying to secure a fence from being jumped or climbed over don't use barbed or razor wire or broken glass – you could be held responsible for any injuries to members of the public, even if they are were going to break into your home.  Sometimes a weak trellis is better, as this makes it hard for the burglar to climb over the fence.  

4. Have a look at your garden, try and identify any weak spots, e.g. weak fences or locks and replace them. Ask yourself, if I were a burglar where would I target?  Bolts can be effective and don't need to be expensive, just like this 6" Bolt for only a few pounds



5. Fit strong lockable high garden gates across passageways to prevent access to a burglar.

6. Look for any areas that could use additional lighting. Security lighting should make offenders feel vulnerable and observed. The aim of security lighting is to illuminate high-risk areas and allow occupiers to see any approaching persons. One of the main problems with effective security lighting is the need for extending mains power supplies. There is a good range of solar powered security lighting that does not need a mains power source, read Amazons customer solar security light reviews here. 

1. See the mycrimeprevention.co.uk guide to preventing distraction and bogus official burglaries. This specialist guide provides information about 'bogus officials' and 'distraction burglars', who they are and how they operate. This is a must read for anyone knows elderly or vulnerable members of the community.

2. Never leave a spare key hidden in a pot, under a stone, behind a loose brick etc – these places are well known to burglars who will check.

3. Don't leave your car or house keys near a door or window; these can be stolen with fishing rods or magnets. Criminals have used fishing rods or poles with magnets attached to them which they put through a letter box or an open window and then use to hook car or house keys – be aware of this issue.

4. After moving house change your door locks – other people may have a key to the property.

5. If you're out or going away use an automatic timer to turn lights, radios or other appliances on when it goes dark low cost light timer switches may be a help.

fake tv is another product that could be used; this makes it look as if your TV is on and somebody is home.



6. Don't leave your curtains closed during the daytime as it could indicate your house is empty.

7. Ask a trusted friend to collect mail / turn lights on and off if you are going away. Criminals may look for houses with a build up of mail, newspaper or milk deliveries and target these properties.

8. Cancel milk, newspaper and other regular deliveries if you are going away for any period of time.

9. If you are going away consider leaving important documents and valuable items with a trusted person, bank or use your own safe.

10. Don't leave empty boxes of high value goods like laptops outside your home – this advertises the fact you may have just bought an expensive item and a burglar may see this as an opportunity to break into your home knowing you have valued goods inside.

11. Don't buy stolen goods – this creates a market for criminals.

12. Visibly mark property with your postcode, house number and first two letters of your name. If goods are visibly marked offenders may be deterred from stealing them as it is obvious to potential buyers that the goods are stolen.  SmartWater is a good alternative to a standard UV pen.

13. Use a safe for jewellery, watches and cash.

14. If you see anyone acting suspiciously report it to the Police using the 999 or 101 system. The Police can only act on information they are aware of. Reporting suspicious incidents may help them reduce burglary crime.

15. Consider joining or setting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, visit www.neighbourhoodwatch.uk.com or visit your local Police station.

16. If you are purchasing a new burglar alarm consider a remote signalling alarm, with intruder alarms terminating at approved central monitoring stations.

17. Take a clear, colour photograph of your property and make a written record of make, model, description and features so you can report it accurately if it is stolen. Alternatively take a video of each room showing property stored, this can be used to help identify stolen property, or may be useful to insurance companies.

18. If you have been a victim of burglary report it to your local Police. If the Police are not aware of the problem they will not be able to focus resources into preventing further victims.
