|Council Warn Of Increase In Burglaries|
Particularly around Putney Hill
The message from the Community Safety Division is that residents should ensure that their premises are properly secure whenever they leave home, even if for a short time. The front door should be fitted with a good quality mortice lock in addition to any latch, or a multilock system and the back door shopuld have a similar level of protection. Never leave the keys in the lock. Glass can be protected with a security film, which should slow a burglar down, or you may prefer to fit grilles over vulnerable areas.
