Burglary

Burglaries and break-ins are less common now than they were six or seven years ago, but they do still happen, and as emotions run high it can be difficult to think rationally about the best course of action. If you discover or suspect that a burglary has taken place on your property, there are a few things you should do:

Remain outside

If you aren’t already inside the property, it is advisable to remain outside the property to avoid contaminating any evidence that could be used to catch the perpetrator.

Call the police and your insurance company

Notifying the police that a burglary has taken place is essential. Police will come to the scene and document a description of what has been taken from the property; they will also be able to recover any evidence from the scene that could help in finding the burglar.

Once you have contacted the police, you should also contact your insurance company. In some cases, an insurance company might decide to send an independent claims evaluator to the scene to assess the grounds for your claim.

Review CCTV footage (if possible)

If you have security cameras on your property, you should try to recover any footage that might provide information about the burglar’s appearance, how they got in, the time of the burglary, etc.

How can I prevent future break-ins?

Here at IDS Security, we offer a range of security systems that are appropriate for the home or workplace, including:

farm security

Theft from farms is on the rise, with crime statistics showing crime levels have doubled since this time last year. With the increase of crime, there should be more focus on farm security systems. Do you have yours in place yet?  

In 2016, rural crime cost the UK £39.2 million and it doesn't seem to be improving in 2017. With agricultural vehicle theft being the most common (and expensive) form of crime, farm security systems are more important than ever before. Other items that are frequently stolen include:

  • Tools & Garden equipment
  • Livestock
  • ATV/Quad
  • 4X4s
  • Trailers 
  • Oil
  • Tractors

This type of crime causes distress, loss of money and increased workload for many farmers. If you own a farm, you'll know it is difficult to keep your eye on all of your equipment and livestock at all times, which is why we've put together some tips to help you increase your farm security. 

Tips to Improve Your Farm Security

  • Install CCTV Around Your Farm

Not only is CCTV an effective part of farm security systems, it can also help deter criminals. If a potential thief is looking to steal from your farm, the first thing they will do is look for any cameras that may incriminate them. If you have installed CCTV on your property, those watchful cameras may make them think twice. Furthermore, if they do not notice the cameras, you will have clear evidence to find the culprit. 

Take a look at our CCTV systems here > 

  • Think About Intruder Alarms

Do you want to know when someone unauthorised enters your property? CCTV can show you when an intruder enters, but you will not know unless you are watching your CCTV cameras 24/7. The Intruder Alarms we stock here at IDS Security will alert the relevant emergency services if any of the following incidents occur. 

              - Unauthorised intruders

              - Personal attacks

              - Fires

              - Medical emergencies

  • Use Door Entry Systems to Prevent Breaking & Entering 

Many thieves gain access to places that are either unlocked or have a weak level of security. Cheap padlocks and chains can easily be broken, but a door entry system is harder to break through. Computerised door entry systems provide a much higher level of farm security, as not only are they harder to break into, the fob key is harder to replicate than a standard key. 

Our Door Entry Systems can be operated by contactless smart cards, key fobs or even biometrics. This allows you to have complete control over who enters the enclosed areas on your farm.
