Is your home secure?

05/03/2015

There was an update about crime issues at the last Parish Council meeting, and one of the items discussed was that there has recently been a spate of daytime burglaries in Burley and also a couple of incidents in Menston. 

PCSO Darrin Thompson is concerned that there will be an increase in this type of crime and is keen that householders are aware of the problems relating to uPVC doors with Europrofile locks.

The Europrofile locks are vulnerable to burglars because the front of the lock protrudes and can easily be pulled out with a pair of pliers. Ideally, they should be replaced by snap locks - with these, if anyone tries to pull the lock out it actually snaps and jams the lock.

Replacement of Europrofile locks will require the householder to call in a locksmith, but at least this course of action helps to defeat potential burglars.

PCSO Thompson is able to advise residents about their home security. He is based in Shipley:
