Surrey Police: Home Security

We have noticed an increase in attemted break ins due to the unseasonably hot weather where residents are opening their windows to let in the cool air and forgetting to close them or lock back doors when they go out.
Could I ask you to impress on your neighbours the importance of ensuring that their homes are secure which means closing and locking all windows and doors when leaving the house.  Also, if you leave a window open when you go to bed please ensure that it has a locking mechanism to ensure that it cannot be opened wide enough to allow anyone to gain entry while you are asleep.
Thank you for your ongoing assistance.
