House Burglary Prevention
Hello. I went through the forums and could not find anything related to burglary, so I start a new subject. I would appreciate any tips you can give on the prevention and the dealing with consequences of burglary. Here is my story (sad). We live in a country house and practically are cut off from sight of the neighbouring houses. Last month, very sadly, our house has been burgled when we were away for a week. I am not lamenting over the monetary loss of my pictures and furniture - everything was insured. But you can guess our emotinal state when things you have been putting together for years are taken! I wish those crooks have no joy with the money they get out of this. Anyhow, the Police told us that it is actually quite common for the thieves to come back and re-burgle the home if they know that there were things left in. For that end we were advised to take pictures of the valuable posessions and keep them for a record. So, keeping the long story short, I would appreciate any advice and tips on how to protect our home. Thanks a lot in advance, John Duncan, Sussex.
