Prevent intruders getting to the back

A man living on his own returned home from work to find his side gate to the rear of the property open. He then found a rear window had been forced open.  Entry had been gained, every room searched and items stolen.

As well as installing the usual alarms to the property, we also fitted a bolt and padlock to the side gate to restrict access to the rear of the house.

Crime Prevention Tip : Always ensure a side gate is locked to stop someone getting to the back of the property where intruders can work without being seen.  Thorny, prickly plants and hedges can put burglars off; fix trellis on top of fencing to make it harder to climb over.

What if I am burgled?
