As usual we have been very busy in the run up to Christmas with late night calls to burglary's and gain entry jobs due to lost keys. With many people having office party's at this time of year we get many calls for lost keys as a result of a drunken night out usually in the early hours of the morning. Unfortunately at this time of year we also get a lot of calls to burglary's in Leeds Wakefield and Bradford because it gets darker earlier and thieves know there will be valuable Christmas presents left in houses. At this time of year make sure all windows and doors are locked even when your in and that keys are not left lying about in easy reach of a window or letterbox. If you are going out in the evening make sure you leave the house well lit with at least a couple of lights on. We hope these few tips help and happy Christmas from 1st Defence Locksmiths.
