Police Advice on Shed and Garage Security


Following reports of numerous shed and garage break-ins, the Police have shared some security advice with us.

Please remain vigilant and review the security of your property. Key points for shed/garage security are:

  • Use a good quality closed shackled padlock
  • Fit coach bolts or anti tamper screws on shed hinges
  • Install a stand-alone shed alarm
  • Secure bikes within sheds to a ground anchor or immovable object
  • Review the lighting and fencing around your property
  • Consider a garage defender

If you see anyone acting suspiciously near to your property or vehicle please contact the police immediately with as detailed a description as possible of any person or vehicle involved. 

Please call 999 if an emergency and urgent police assistance is required or 101 to report the matter to the police.
