Summer Safety Tips

With summer here, residents are once again reminded to make safety and security a priority. Use these tips to reduce your chances of being a victim crime.

 Top 10 Tips to Avoid Being Burgled

  1. Keep doors and windows locked at all times, even when at home, including sheds and garages.
  2. Keep valuable items such as laptops, mobile phone, and mp3 players out of sight.
  3. Install a security alarm with visible external light and always turn it on.
  4. Do not leave spare keys hidden outside, leave it with a friend/neighbour/relative.
  5. Arrange for mail to be held by Australia Post or collected daily by someone while you are away.
  6. Be careful of stating whereabouts on social media.
  7. Install motion sensor lights to the exterior of your property.
  8. Keep trees and shrubs trimmed to reduce the opportunity for burglars to hide and increase visibility from the street.
  9. Engrave/mark your property with your driver’s licence number for easy identification.
  10. Destroy boxes from newly bought appliances such as TVs and DVD players so they are not on display for burglars to see.

The Town of Mosman Park has property engravers available FREE OF CHARGE for residents to borrow.

Prevent Theft of Property from Motor Vehicles

A lot of car crime results from criminals seeing opportunities and taking them. You can easily outsmart the car criminal by following the simple advice below.

Items such as shopping bags, sports bags, a brief case or an old coat on the back seat are temptations for someone to smash and grab. They steal first and think about the value later.

If you leave any of the following items visible in your car you are increasing the risk of your vehicle being targeted by an offender:

  • Cash
  • GPS navigators
  • CDs
  • Cheque books
  • Credit and debit cards
  • Handbags
  • House keys
  • Laptop computers
  • Mobile phones
  • Mp3 players
  • Mail with your address on it
  • Store cards
  • Sunglasses
  • Vehicle registration

Prevent Motor Vehicle Theft

It only takes a few seconds for a thief to jump into your car and drive away. When you leave your car, remove the ignition key and lock the doors, even when filling up with petrol or popping into the shops. While you can never completely eliminate car theft, you can prevent it from happening to you by following some of these simple tips:

  • Ensure all windows are completely shut, including the sunroof.
  • Remove the ignition key and lock the doors whenever you leave your car, even if you are only leaving it unattended for a minute. 
  • Keep your car keys in a safe place, out of sight (not on tables, benches, desks or key hooks) and away from windows and doors where they can be easily taken. 
  • Do not hide spare car keys anywhere on the car.
  • If you have a garage, use it!  If you do not have a garage, try to park in a well-lit, open space.
  • Consider purchasing a car alarm.  Check with your insurance company, as it could reduce your premium.

A significant amount of car theft is the result of criminals seeing opportunities and taking them. Take away their opportunity and help Mosman Park continue to be the safe community that it is!
