Simple precautions to keep your home safe while you're away
As thousands of holidaymakers get away for some rest and relaxation, Hounslow Council and local police have urged people to take some simple precautions to keep their homes safe.
Cllr Richard Foote, cabinet member for community safety, said: “I would urge anyone going on holiday to take these simple safety measures to keep your home safe and give you some peace of mind while taking a hard earned rest.”
Superintendent Sally Benatar of Hounslow Police said "We know that burglary has a huge emotional impact on victims and we are working hard to arrest and bring to justice the people who burgle your homes and handle stolen goods. Please help us reduce crime by following this security advice."
