My two Bobbies, Steve and Jeff, work tremendously hard to make the homes of the people they visit more secure and safe – and spend time explaining how the security devices work and what other preventative measures can be taken to feel safer in their own homes and when out and about.  So it can be very frustrating for them when they go back to re-visit a home, only to find that all the window and door alarms have been switched off and the doors left unlocked, despite the home owner fearing that the offender would return and enter the house!  People do have to take responsibility for their own safety.  Most crime prevention measures are common sense and take very little time or effort to implement.  It costs our charity on average £130 to work at each home, so when we see that people are not using our security devices as they were intended to be used, you can imagine how we feel!!
