Coronavirus (Covid-19): We're asking you please to only call 999 if it is an emergency and 101 if it is urgent. If you can, use our online services. If you’re looking for information about the government instruction to stay at home and how that may affect you, you'll find guidance on Gov.uk. We’ll be updating information on our services over the coming days, please check online for those updates.
Your home is only as secure as its weakest point of entry. That’s why it’s so important to have doors and windows that are as secure as possible. In this section you’ll find lots of advice on how to keep potential burglars out.
Simply shutting the door won’t prevent burglaries. Double-lock the door every single time you leave the house.
Modern multi-locking and uPVC doors use a system of hooks and latches to secure the door but these only work if you lift up the handle and then remember to turn and remove the key. Remember – lift, lock and remove.
