The Crime Prevention Website


Thieving from the garden can lead to thieving from the house. 

Frank, a now 87 year old retired Crime Prevention Officer used to say to me “Look after your garden boy and the house will look after itself”.  I don’t think he thought I had a boy in the garden (he was calling me 'boy'), so I think what he meant by that was that if somebody got into the back garden they were only one step away from getting into the back of your house; probably using garden tools to do so.  At least I think that’s what he meant, but needless to say we all seem to have so many more goodies to steal from the garden than we used to.

So, please keep Frank happy and click on the various headings in the left hand column to see what you can do.
