In sight of the above burglary related incidents in the neighbourhood, a common theme is present whereby the intruder’s access is gained with relative ease due to windows and doors being unlocked or insecure. It is advisable to ensure all windows and doors are locked, denying easy access for potential intruders with the aim of deterring an incident altogether. This is most relevant when a property is being left unoccupied for any given time. However, it is recommended that doors and windows are locked in any room that you are not currently using. For further in depth security advice please visit https://www.cheshire.police.uk/advice-and-support/home-safety-and-security/ Please note it is important to have an agreed escape plan in the event of a fire, having locked windows and doors.
