BE NEIGHBOURLY!!! Spare some time for the very old. Only 13% of people have not experienced a bogus or suspicious caller to their home over the past five years. 6% have experienced theft as a result of allowing an un-expected caller into their home. The elderly are particularly vulnerable. Fear of this and other types of crime combined with lack of mobility can isolate elderly people from community life.
VEHICLE CRIME: Your responsibility to prevent vehicle theft:
How important is your car, your truck, your motorcycle or other vehicle to you? Do you need your vehicle to travel to work? Do you need it at work? Or, do you need your vehicle to transport your family? But, how many of us take extra precautions to protect our motor vehicles? There are some things you can do: Always lock your vehicle, no matter where it is. Use a good alarm system in your vehicle. Don’t leave valuables in view in your vehicle. Consider installing an automatic sensor light over your vehicle at home, it will scare off intruders when the light is actioned, and lock your vehicle doors/windows when suspicious people/cars are approaching. If you see any stickers in your car do not remove them, and drive away.
YOU CAN BE FOLLOWED: Look always around, outside your house, parking places, markets, supermarkets, leaving or arriving at Airports… BE AWARE.
YOUR HOUSE & GARDEN ARE YOUR CASTLE: Nobody has the right to trespass your gate or front door. Do not speak to strangers. Install interior and exterior good alarms.
SCAMS: By Computer, Email, Telephone, Fax, Visitors, Mobile Phone, in the Markets, Time Shares. False Policemen, Gasmen, Charity people.
