Tips from Norfolk Constabulary about protecting your property

There have been a spate of break-ins across the towns and villages of Breckland in the past few weeks.  Swaffham Safer Neighborhood Team (Police) have published some tips to help you be safer in your home.

  1. Ensure all windows are shut when leaving your property including communal ones.

  2. When leaving your property ensure the front door is locked and if you have an alarm, set it.
