Consider the use of movement sensor security lighting and CCTV to cover vulnerable areas of your property such as flat roofs, patio windows and rear garden sheds.

Always lock your vehicle when you leave it and take that extra second to make sure it is actually secured. Do not leave valuable property in unattended vehicles. It is amazing the amount of personal data that is to be found on mobile phones and lap tops etc. which can be used for identity theft.

See attached documents for advice re: preventing the theft of catalytic converters
