Shed break

·  Sheds are often broken into by burglars who will steal tools to use to break into your house. Keep your shed locked and obscure any windows with window film, paint, or net curtains.

·  If possible, choose to store expensive items such as lawn mowers, hedge cutters, bikes and tools more securely in a garage.

·  Overtly mark your tools with your postcode so they can be identified as belonging to you. TOOL SECURITY SILVER | CRE Products

Further security tips can be found on the Northamptonshire Police website and on the Neighbourhood Watch website.
