Keep your jewellery and valuables safe with these simple precautions:

» Keep all your valuables in a safe and secure location such as a safety deposit box or bank. Don't keep valuables at home

» Make sure you double-lock any UPVC doors by lifting the handle and locking it at all times

» Check all doors are locked and all windows, including those upstairs, are secure before you go out or go to bed

» Use timer switches on lamps to give the impression somebody is at home or keep a light on in the evening if you go out

» Consider installing alarms and 'dusk to dawn' security lighting

» Consider the installation of a CCTV camera outside your property

» Keep photographic records of all your jewellery 

» When leaving the property remove keys from locks and place out of sight
