Are you going away for the holidays?

Home security

Before you hit the road, allow yourself to have the peace of mind that your home is secure.

Here are some tips that can help when you’re away for an extended period of time:

  • Lock the house, garage and shed
  • Ask a family member to keep an eye on the house and visit regularly
  • Ask a neighbour or friend to clear the mailbox
  • Don’t leave ladders and tools lying around
  •  Install timer switches and sensor lights to keep the house well lit
  •  Do not leave valuable items in clear view of a window
  •  Organise to have your lawn mowed and rubbish bins collected
  •  Have someone park their car in your driveway.

If you notice anything suspicious in your neighbourhood contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website.

Doing these small things will help ensure that your holiday creates the right kind of memories!
