Gardens, garages and sheds

Garden sheds can be a target – they contain unmarked items that are easy to sell and are often left unlocked or insecure.

Increase your shed security by putting diamond mesh grilles on your windows. These provide a visual deterrent to opportunistic burglars.
How to avoid crime Hertfordshire
Don’t leave tools and implements unattended in your garden – these can be used to break into your home. Keep them in a secure shed or garage. If you don’t have a safe shed or garage or storage box, securing tools together will make it more difficult for them to be taken away or used.

Get the right lock for your shed or garage door – weak protection will make it much easier for someone to force open the door. See here for the technical details.
