Had an important reminder about home security from a local pal who had the unfortunate experience of a housebreaking recently. For anyone who has has been in this position, you may wish to look at this info from Victim Support Scotland: https://victimsupport.scot/
I know Police Scotland have been proactive in providing info about recent arrests in relation to local housebreakings which has been reassuring but clearly we need to share sensible information about how to keep our homes secure.
Their advice is generally:
Lock windows/doors Secure sheds/garages Check security lighting is working Don't leave tools lying around Don't advertise an empty house online
And this useful Police Scotland web page has further details and is well worth a look: https://www.scotland.police.uk/advi.../your-home/your-house/
