Protect your property: Police

THE Queensland Police Service is urging Central Queenslanders to stay vigilant about property and vehicle security this summer holiday season.

Police say thieves are opportunistic and rely on the complacency of others – and with people not properly securing their property while on holidays, it can be an ideal time for thieves to strike.

Residents are advised to lock and secure all doors and windows when not at home, lock vehicles in a secure garage and keep curtains closed when away from the house, especially at night.

Other tips include installing light timers inside the house when you’re away, keeping windows locked unless you are occupying a room and when in the yard ensure you secure your house.

It’s important that spare keys aren’t left around the house in obvious places and valuables shouldn’t be left visible in your car.
