Garda Síochána Home Security Checklist

An Garda Síochána have created a crime prevention information sheet. With burglaries increasing up to 23% from November to January, it is the perfect time to better secure your home.

The Gardaí inform us that burglars like easy opportunities. If they have to make a lot of noise, spend a lot of time or risk being seen, the chances are they won't bother. A good rule of thumb is the 3 minute delay test. If you can deny entry for 3 minutes or more — chances are the burglars will go elsewhere. Complete this simple home security survey to determine how well your home is secured against burglary.
