Burglars are very active in Bromley at this time. Please be aware of crime prevention measures you can take to secure your property. If you see anything suspicious in your neighbourhood inform the police.
1. PVC and aluminium doors should have multi-locking systems which must be activated by lifting the handle and then locking with a key. It is not secure if you only lift the handle.
2. Always engage your mortice lock on wooden doors. It is not secure if you only activate a yale lock.
3. Do not leave any windows open either on the ground or upper floors.
4. Most burglars are looking for opportunities so lock gates to your garden and do not leave garages or sheds open.
