Home Safely

Good afternoon,


Everyone deserves to feel safe in their own home. 


Here are some precautions to reduce your risk of becoming a victim:


Be secure - Close and lock all doors and windows.  Fit extra strong locks and consider installing an alarm.

Hide all keys - including car keys.  Keep keys out of sight and away from the letterbox (a device could be used to hook keys)

Remove temptation - Make sure your valuables can't be seen.  Store valuables in a secure place or a safe.

Mark your property - with your postcode and house number and register for free, online at immobolise.com

Con the criminal - Leave a radio or light on timer and draw the curtains if you go out at night.

Be a good neighbour - Keep an eye on each others property.  Let your neighbours know when you go on holiday and cancel deliveries.

Put criminals in the spotlight - Consider security lights, CCTV or a ring style doorbell.


In an emergency (if there is an intruder in your home or a crime is taking place) always call 999.

To report a crime or suspicious activity call 101 or report online at doitonline.lancashire.police.uk


Stay Safe
