The Genealogy Sunshine Coast group were the keen recipients recently of a home security presentation provided by the Sunshine Coast Crime Prevention Unit.

With an attendance of over 30 members, some of the topics included discussions on a home security assessment for increasing security in domestic premises, and conducting a home security audit to allow them to feel comfortable and safe in their homes.

With an emphasis on practical locking systems which will improve peace of mind and quality of life, the presentation certainly provided a platform for lively discussion.

The four basic principles of home security include:

  • Make it as difficult as possible for an offender to gain entry;
  • Make it as difficult as possible for an offender to exit with your property;
  • Make it as difficult as possible for an offender to dispose of your property; and
  • Make it easy for the offender to be noticed.

Free home security audit checklists and home security information can be located at here.
