IS YOUR OUTDOOR PEOPERTY safe?: Criminals are not only interested in the property within your house, they can also be tempted by goods and equipment stored outside in garages, sheds and even in the garden. Property such as bicycles, lawnmowers and power tools can be just as valuable as televisions, stereos and videos. However a few simple steps can help keep equipment safe and deter thieves and burglars. Garages, sheds and other outbuildings should be kept in good condition and you can improve security by fixing steel mesh or bars on the insides of windows: fitting concealed hinges to prevent criminals from undoing screws and bolts: fitting good quality locks to all doors – padlocks should be of the closed shackle type to reduce the risk of being forced. Much of this also applies to allotments but also get to know your neighbours – if they know you they are more likely to be suspicious if somebody else is on your plot.
