The best defence against burglary is prevention.

Ensure that gates or access to the rear of the house are locked and secure.Trim overgrown plants - don't give burglars a hiding place. Secure garden tools and ladders in a locked shed or garage to prevent them being used to break into your home. Fit outside security lighting and a visible burglar alarm to help deter burglars.
