Call 911 if you see someone breaking into something

Residents know best when something is not right in their neighborhood. A stranger peeking into houses, for example. Or activities at a house where you know the residents are on holiday. If you call 112, the police may be able to prevent a burglary or arrest a burglar in the act! Calling 112 is intended for emergencies. So not only for life-threatening situations, but certainly also when you witness a crime or are preparing for a burglary or theft.

This way you make it difficult for burglars

Burglars take advantage of the opportunity presented to them. You make it extra difficult for them by:

  • Approved hinges and locks on windows, (garage) doors and any skylights.
  • A special lock on a burglar-sensitive sliding door.
  • Sufficient outdoor lighting.
  • Timer switches on all floors of your house. Have your interior lights turn on and off at different times.
