You will never be able to stop a criminal but you can delay their actions by thinking ahead and by making the entry process more complicated. Don’t be a soft target, crime can happen to anyone at any time.

1. Keep your travel plans offline

If you’re planning to travel during the holiday season, be sure to keep your travel plans off your social media networks. Never post where you’re going, when you’re leaving, or when you’ll be back.

This is prime information for a burglar to know when your house will be empty. Even if you have the highest level of security on your social accounts, posting this kind of information is never recommended.

2.Keep your alarm system in check

If you have an alarm system installed in your household, ensure that it is in full working order. Testing your system for faults can save you the risk of ineffective robbery prevention

3. Load your vehicle in the back yard or in your garage, behind closed doors

A fully packed holiday car left in front of the house is a green light for those opportunistic criminals. They will know that you will be leaving within a few hours after the vehicle is packed

4. New Presents / Electronic Equipment

Do not throw the empty boxes of your newly bought TV or expensive electronic equipment on the side curb. Criminals see this as an open invitation. Through doing this, criminals also know what you have on the inside of your house and will use this as an opportunity to try and take what is yours
