It’s easy to get swept away in the excitement leading up to a holiday, but it’s important to remember the security risks that comes with it. Empty homes are prime targets for burglars, who see these properties as opportunities to commit burglary without fear of identification or disturbance.
An empty home means a lower risk of criminal activity being caught or reported. Often the crime is not discovered until holidaymakers return home, adding an extra level of difficulty to police investigations. A burgled home can be incredibly distressing for all involved. We have put together a helpful checklist of important things to remember before leaving your home.
To avoid becoming a victim of burglary while on holiday, follow these simple precautions, and enjoy your holiday stress free.
