Don’t Become A Victim West Yorkshire Police Summer Burglary Campaign

Local News

Over the warmer months please ensure you do not become a victim of Burglary.

Keep your doors and windows locked even when you’re in – burglars will try doors to find one that is unlocked.

You should keep doors and windows locked, even when you are in the house and when you get home. Try to change your habit if you don’t lock your door behind you.

Make your home look lived in – use timer switches or leave your television on when you’re not home.

Always remember to switch on your burglar alarm if you have one.

Keep valuables out of view – burglars will look through windows to see if there is anything worth stealing.

Door chimes and burglar alarms will deter a burglar from entering your property.

If you have a garage, use it to store your car – burglars will look at your car to judge whether to break in the house for the keys or whether your house might contain items they would want to steal.

Cancel the milk and newspapers when you go on holiday and find a trusted neighbour, friend or relative to move your post and open and close blinds and curtains.

Being a victim of sneak-in burglary can have both emotional and financial effects. High value goods are costly to replace if stolen, and items such as phones and cameras often hold information with sentimental value such as photos, which cannot be replaced.

Keep doors and windows locked when in the garden having BBQs, gardening, hanging out the washing, etc.

Don’t leave garden tools or furniture outside, as they can be used by burglars to enter your property.

Dispose of packaging for expensive items properly; don’t advertise what is in your house.

Register your property on so that if it is stolen and recovered by the Police it can then be returned to you.
