We’ve been saddened to hear about the recent spate of burglaries in Lancaster – home to our headquarters – in both commercial property and homes across the city.

Police have urged shop staff to take extra care and stay alert after shops, including hair salons and small restaurants, have been targeted. Managers have been reminded to ensure their premises are properly secured and to consider taking high value stock and cash from tills from the property as a precaution.

The force have also warned homeowners to be vigilant after a number of burglaries in the Aldcliffe area of the city have been reported. All burglars accessed the houses via the windows before stealing property.

This wave of break-ins has prompted us to share some advice from Police.uk on how to keep your property secure, including tips on locking doors, windows and gates, keeping property from view, and installing visual deterrents such as alarms and lighting:



According to the Police, homes with no security measures in place are five times more likely to be burgled than those with simple security measures in place.
