Your Quick Pic Guide To What To Do If You’ve Been Burgled!
If you’ve ever been burgled you’ll know the first reaction is shock. Confusion and panic set in and your brain is filled with thoughts – but none of them are the ones you need! You need a clear plan to deal with the situation and we found this handy infographic guide.
The latest figures (June 2019) show that 874 homes in Essex had been burgled that month. This doesn’t include places like Romford and Ilford which are covered by the Metropolitan Police. And also covered by Eastern – we work all down the A127 and A12 corridor from Southend to the IG postcodes!
Those homes would be well advised to beef up their security, the stats show that burglars do come back again!
Never been burgled? Let’s keep it that way!
Of course, the ideal situation is to not be burgled. For that you need layers of security.
- Basic, everyday things that stop the opportunist thief, such as the 5 habits in this post.
- A professional intruder alarm system to deter the more organised burglar. DIY kits are easy for them to bypass so look for SSAIB accreditation to get proper equipment fitted, then keep it maintained.
- CCTV to cover the outside and keep an eye on things through your phone, wherever you are. Not the fuzzy doorstep stuff! Invest in HD cameras, professionally sited so you get a full viewing range. And high quality images that Police can actually use to identify and prosecute.
