Burglary: how can you prevent intrusions into your home?
Secure windows and doors
Ensure the physical security of your home. Make sure all your windows and external doors have strong locks. Which? recommends that all accessible doors and windows are double-glazed and reminds us: “Windows with key-operated locks on show may put burglars off, but remember to hide the keys out of sight and somewhere the burglar can't reach if the glass is broken.”Also, doors and window locks clearly only work if these potential points of entry are shut securely each time you leave the house.
