Have you locked your door?

Dear Resident,


Recent incidents in Cambridge highlight the importance of securing our homes. In response to a series of burglaries where offenders gained access due to doors being left unlocked overnight, we want to empower you to protect your home. 


Step up your home security by following these tips:

🔐 Ensure your doors and windows are locked at all times, especially overnight. This significantly reduces the risk of unauthorised entry.

🚪 Consider installing a ring doorbell camera. It allows you to monitor your doorstep, receives alerts, and even interacts with visitors remotely.

💡 Install outdoor lighting to discourage intruders. Motion sensor lights can be a great deterrent.

⏰ When leaving your home unattended, consider using timers for indoor lights and radios to create the appearance that someone is inside.

📲 Avoid broadcasting your absence on social media and instead share your vacation updates after you return.

Your safety is paramount to us. By staying vigilant and implementing these measures, we can create a more secure living environment.
