away from home dude

 

Thieves earn their living round the clock. Afterall, you are always there to provide them with their treasure trove every single hour of the day, simply by being away from home. Around 1,700 people become the targets of pickpockets daily. Opportunist thieves and con artists are constantly on the look-out for any chance to steal your money and valuables while you are out shopping.

Similarly, you can easily turn into a victim while you are away from home, as your property becomes a target, too. You may be following a routine of picking the kids up from school at 2p.m. sharp everyday, without knowing that someone is slyly observing and waiting until you are away to have his plunder at 2p.m. Otherwise, you might be enjoying a vacation, particularly during school holidays, and thieves know this is a popular time for families to vacate their house (leaving behind ‘only’ most of their belongings!)- Indeed, your house turns into the favourite playground for burglars.

Essex Part Night Lighting Programme

Posted on 22 Jul 2014 In: News

night-burglar

Early civilisations knew the importance of public lighting. Lamps were then used to illuminate the path of wanderers in the dark- be it pedestrians or prowling criminals, thus acting as a form of security. Studies have shown that darkness results in a large number of crashes and fatalities, especially those involving pedestrians; pedestrian fatalities are 3 to 6.75 times more likely in the dark than in daylight. Yet, today, street lighting seems to be affecting the environment. Street Lighting energy costs were approximately £4m in 2010/2011 and are expected to rise. As measures are taken to protect the Earth, concerns are raised about its impact on the security of the Earthlings. In a bid to cut costs as well as energy consumption, the Essex County Council has carried out a Part-night lighting programme of switching off the lights between midnight to 5a.m.

bogus caller at door of an old lady

When you place that Welcome mat across your doorstep, be careful who you are actually inviting inside your house. They are named Cold callers a.k.a. Bogus callers a.k.a. Rogue traders, although they come under the guise of workers from the council, police, healthcare, market research, utility or phone companies. Their claims to “check something” can be rather persuasive, especially to the intentionally targeted victims: the elderly and vulnerable. Unfortunately these cunning criminals are not really going to clean the window, repair your driveway and roofing. Once they have convinced the victim and successfully crossed the threshold, they are most certainly not going to offer any home improvement services- as that is not what burglars actually do.
