Aldershot Locksmith Student Security Advice
For most students locking doors, shutting windows, hiding important and valuable items is all part of their routines, particularly as those items hold precious coursework, dissertations, notes and much more. Quite rightly, when students are one of the highest at-risk groups of crime in the country, targeted for their high-value gadgets.
After all, the chance of getting back your laptop, tablet, phone, etc. after it’s been stolen is very unlikely, and getting it back in a state where the data is still retrievable is even less likely. Therefore, it’s important that students are made more aware of how to keep their property more secure.
Consider taking full details of valuables and/or electronic appliances, making a note of the serial number and ‘identity marking’ everything.
Avoid hiding a key under the doormat, flower pot, wheelie bin or any other obvious hiding places. Burglars are highly aware of this habit, especially in student areas and will often check before attempting to break in, giving them unrestricted access to students’ property and possessions.
Although it’s tempting to leave doors open when it’s sunny, you’re having a party and there’s people coming in and out of your property, this walk-in opportunity accounts for the highest proportion of student burglaries. Be aware of opportunistic thieves, keep valuables hidden in non-obvious places, for example, not under a pillow and not in the sock drawer, remember that a shut door is not a locked door and keep an eye out for mystery guests.
Furthermore, students should take a minute to look up their local licensed locksmith details and store them for an emergency.
