‘In light of these incidents we would like to offer the following crime prevention advice:
Always make sure that your shed is locked and secure. Preferably use a close shackled lock (to prevent cropping) or an alarmed padlock. Choose padlocks that state “HARDENED”. Also consider a shed alarm.
• Never leave tools or other items, including ladders, out in the garden that could be used to break into your shed.
• Hinges are often unscrewed or forced – swap some of the screws for coach bolts.
• Ensure items of value such as tools and cycles are clearly marked, preferably with CreMark.
• Register serial numbers of tools and cycles free of charge on https://crowd.in/XVLEZU
ENSURE YOUR INSURANCE ADEQUATELY COVERS YOUR POSSESSIONS.
