We’d like to advise residents to ensure that their homes are adequately secured, internally and externally. It’s important when you are at home at night to always sleep with your home alarm activated. If you do not already have external beams and CCTV surveillance cameras on your property, it is worth installing these as they provide a strong early warning system and serve as a deterrent to criminals.
