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.
