Gardens, sheds and garages often contain expensive items such as lawnmowers, bikes and tools. Therefore, they are commonly targeted by thieves. We worked in partnership with Secured by Design to create this guide to securing gardens, sheds and garages. Secured by Design is the police initiative that improves the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings. This guide aims to help you ensure that your garden and outbuildings are protected against potential intruders.
