There are certain measures you can take to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim yourself:

• Don’t leave curtains/blinds open, and don’t leave valuables on show.

• If you are going away, ask a neighbour or friend to check your house regularly.

• Buy timer switches for lamps and radios to give the impression that someone is home.

• Install an alarm system and ensure the alarm box is clearly visible.

• Don’t leave keys in doors – remove them and keep them close at hand but out of sight where you can easily find them in an emergency.

• Don’t leave your house unattended with windows open and unlocked – even for just a minute.

• If you are in the garden or upstairs, make sure your downstairs doors and windows are closed.

• Never leave a key under a doormat or on a string through the letterbox.
