South Yorkshire Police enter homes as break-in warning!November 7, 2013
South Yorkshire police have started a new crime warning scheme to highlight the ease at which some homes can be entered. The police force simply walk down a street trying doors, any houses that are open are then entered, this give the opportunity to pass on important security information to the residents.
South Yorkshire found that students were especially vulnerable to house theft, as doors and windows are routinely left open. Door and window locks are great, but they have to be used, there is no point fitting high security expensive locks if they are not used!
