An overview of the Essex Police Christmas safety tips

Senior Crime Prevention Tactical Advisor, John Hills, offered some brilliant advice on keeping your home safe whilst going away this Christmas.

First piece of Christmas security advice:

  • Don't advertise your Christmas holiday on Social Media - you never know who might see, and plan an attack on your home. It's best to upload pictures when you return!

Not convinced this is a problem? Two high profile examples may change your mind...

  1. John Terry's mansion was ransacked after he posted a picture of his family skiing trip on Instagram!
  2. Kim Kardashian West's Paris robbery was prompted by a Social Media post showing off her diamond ring.
