Rural garage/shed breaks

Good morning all,


Unfortunately we are still seeing a consistent pattern of garage/shed breaks in the Test Valley area so here are some tips that you could look to implement yourself in order to avoid becoming the victim of this;

Install heavy duty locks

Get alarms that can sound on movement, can be placed on doors and windows and will sound when someone is trying to wedge them open

CCTV cameras around the property

Wildlife cameras, can be positioned anywhere and hidden well if needed

Tactical parking, park your cars as close to the front of your garage as possible
