Weekly NHW Brief

07-08-2015 – 13-08-2015

We have seen a slight increase in shed breaks this week and are reminding residents to follow the below advice.

 Put Gravel on paths and driveways to alert you to someone approaching

 Fix a wooden trellis to the top of fences as if climbed, it will break, creating noise and attracting attention

 Ensure gates at the side or back of the house are kept locked with a good quality bolt and padlock

 Do not leave ladders lying around

 Install security lights to illuminate your garden

 Keep shrubs, hedges and large plants cut back

 The planting of a prickly hedge, such as firethorn, climbing rose or hawthorn, against existing fencing will act as a powerful deterrent

 Speak to your local garden centre about plants which provide natural protection

 If your shed has windows consider putting up net curtains

 Consider installing a battery operated shed alarm

 Chain cycles, mowers, ladder and tools together inside the shed

 Consider having lockable steel boxes fitted to the floor of your shed top store tools in

 Permanently mark your shed contents with your postcode

What do we have available:

Crime prevention shed packs

Crime Prevention Officer or your Neighbourhood Officers will visit your home to provide shed alarms if needed
