Basic Crime Reduction Advice from Suffolk Police


Always keep sheds locked, with a good quality close shackle padlock;

ensure sheds are behind a secure perimeter;

use dusk to dawn lighting;

use hasp and staples, a padbar, or coach bolts or non-tamper screws to fasten hinges/hasps;

security mark property, with your house number and post code; and

register your belongings at;

fit anchor points to secure items;

have a monitored alarm fitted (i.e. texting alarm), and avoid storing high value items.


Register serial numbers of tools and equipment via Immobilise and make a personal record.  This will help identify items if they are found, and speed up the process of returning items to the owners.
