Queensland Police : Home security

After writing about home security and opportunistic break and enter type offences earlier in the week, Police from Burpengary Station are again urging home owners to ensure that they have their homes locked and secured.

There were several break-ins overnight, and officers have found some of the homes may have been accessed through unsecured entryways.

One of the easiest ways to deter offenders from breaking into your home is to ensure that your home is locked and secured each night.

The harder you make if for someone to steal your property, the better the deterrence and less likely you are to attract opportunistic offenders.

A trip to a hardware store and a subsequent small investment can also provide you with some additional home security.

By purchasing a door lock guard (as pictured below), you will be able to further deter offenders from being able to cut through fly screens to unlock doors.
