Halton Police remind area residents to take steps to ensure their homes and valuables are safe and secure this summer. A Halton Police spokesperson says summer is traditionally a time when opportunistic criminals take advantage of unlocked doors and windows. Police remind residents to make sure their ground floor windows are properly closed and locked before going to bed, and stress that window and door screens can be easily cut. Residents should keep garage and front doors locked even if they are just going out to garden or swim in their backyard pool. Police say one of the most effective things homeowners can do when they are away on holidays is to ask neighbours and friends to watch their homes for them. Papers and mail should be picked up and motion lights or timers for lights should be used to give the home a lived-in appearance. Anyone who sees suspicious activity in their neighbourhood should contact police.
