For many people personal and home security are hot topics in the current climate. Here at Premier League Security we take great pride in providing help and services to a range of clients - from close protection services to house sitting, private event security, panic rooms and more.
Here we’ve compiled a list of our top ten security tips to assist you in keeping your family and property as safe and secure as possible, short of investing in personal security.
Restrict the personal information that you and your family put on to Social Media, and don’t put any photos on any social media platform of your wife, partner or children.
If you go away let a neighbour know, use timers on the lights in your house, and cancel any deliveries such as milk and newspapers. Leave one car on the drive indicting that there is someone in the house.
Have an approved house alarm fitted and use it, when you go to bed make sure you set the alarm downstairs.
Do not give all your personal contact details to anyone you don’t know and make sure you have a security chain fitted to the main access door to your house and use it when strangers call round unannounced.
Try to avoid making it obvious if you must carry around a lot of cash or jewellery, whenever possible pay by debit card. Plus keep your keys and valuables hidden in a safe place.
When you are out in your car make sure you use the central locking system, and know the route to your nearest hospital and police station.
When you are out socially always make sure you know the nearest emergency escape route and keep an eye on your drinks at all times.
Vary your route to work and don’t put an obvious private number plate on your car that can be linked to you.
Make sure you keep garages, sheds and outbuildings locked and secure, if you have security gates at the entrance of the property make sure that they are closed always when not in use.
Check your house security regularly either by self-testing or get one of our security consultants to provide a more thorough assessment.
