10 top tips to keep your home secure over Christmas

South Wales Police have offered these handy hints to keep your home safe over the festive period:

  • Arrange for parcels to be delivered with neighbours if you're going to be out.
  • Make sure presents and valuables aren't visible through windows.
  • Secure all doors and windows before you leave home - even if you're only away for a short while.
  • Protect patio doors with additional locks or security measures.
  • Set your burglar alarm when you go to bed at night and when you leave during the day.
  • Don't keep house or car keys in obvious locations or anywhere near the front doors.
  • Never leave a door key in a convenient hiding place, like under a flower pot etc.
  • Use a door chain before you answer the door.
  • Be aware of uninvited callers - check identities and if in doubt don't let them in.
  • Don't advertise that your home is empty - if you are going away, be careful who you tell. Consider who may have access to messages that you put on social media.
