Boost your Secure Score with some Home Crimprovement

2 minutes read

This month is Neighbourhood Watch Month and crime prevention partners Crimsafe and Neighbourhood Watch Australasia are urging homeowners to do a little ‘home crimprovement’ to strengthen the safety and security of their homes and improve their Secure Score.

Here are some ways you can do some ‘Home Crimprovement’ at your place:

  • Move your wheelie bins to a secure location, not against the house
  • Lock your gates – both front and back with a solid padlock
  • Lock your garden shed and garage
  • Trim trees so crim’s have nowhere to hide
  • Install security screens to protect from unwanted intruders
  • Install cameras to deter criminals and monitor your home
  • Fixed sliding doors can reduce the risk of a break-in
  • Adding sensor lights can light up dark areas at night

If you’re looking for a checklist to help you do a little Home Crimprovement, you can download one here.

What is Secure Score?

Secure Score is a free, online home security audit tool designed to promote safer and more secure communities by empowering homeowners to make their homes more secure. A home’s Secure Score is determined by assessing the security measures from the street level, within the yard and inside the home. Each security feature, such as a spotlight, security camera or security screen, is assigned a value that makes up a home’s Secure Score – a score out of 100.
