Operation Crooked

Operation Crooked is targeting burglars in Northamptonshire.Help us keep your home secure by following these tips:

  • Keep external doors locked, even when you're at home or out in the garden. If you rent a room, keep communal entry doors secure, lock your room and report security issues to your landlord.
  • If you open a window, always close and lock it when you leave the room or go out.
  • Keep valuables and car keys out of sight and reach of letterboxes, pet flaps and downstairs doors and windows.
  • Make sure your garden boundary and gates are secure. Lock away all tools and ladders so they can't be used to break into your home.
  • If you're going away on holiday, make your home look lived in while you're away. Ask a trusted friend or neighbour to open and close curtains and remove post, and use a timer to switch on an energy-saving light in the evenings.
  • Mark your property with your postcode and house number so it can be identified as yours and returned if stolen and recovered. Register items with serial numbers free at www.immobilise.com
