Review the exterior of your home
Sometimes it is the small things that make a big difference, review the outside of your home to check for any weak spots in your home security.

Check the vulnerability of gates, locks and windows and ensure you are not accidently providing a route to entry with climbable fences or sheds.

You can make a difference by locking away any tools and items such as ladders, or think about planting in--passable plants or bushes to deter opportunist criminals.
