Christmas crime prevention



Christmas Present


Keep presents out of sight – piles of gifts under the tree that are visible through a door or window are tempting to thieves. Don’t leave empty boxes outside – it advertises all the new goods you have. Be wary of anyone offering you high price goods at a cut down price. Your bargain could be someone else's Christmas present and handling stolen goods could carry a prison sentence.

Plan ahead

Make it look like someone is at home when you’re going out for the evening – leave lights on and close the curtains. If you’re going on holiday over the festive period, ask a friend, relative or neighbour to keep an eye on your house.
