Crime prevention advice from: https://www.kent.police.uk/
Most burglaries happen on weekdays, in daylight, when you’re more likely to be out. As well as locking up each time you leave you can also: keep keys, cash and expensive items out of view, use timer switches on lights and radios to make your home look occupied, keep gates locked and boundaries secure, lock away bikes, tools and garden items which could be stolen or used to break into your home.
