It is vitally important that we have a very secure perimeter fence or wall to protect our property and family. It is, and always will be our first line of defence, and, as such, we need to ensure that we have high-security fencing around our property to act as an effective deterrent to would-be criminals.
We must always ensure we know the legal requirements necessary for the erection of good perimeter walls and fences, to avoid unnecessary tearing down of a structure because we have not met the legal requirements.
This is where it is good to consult with experts like Country Wide Walling, who will be able to advise and guide us in making the best possible choice to meet out specific needs.
It is vital to perform a risk assessment to establish threats and consequences of any breaches in security.
You need to take into account whether your property is in a high crime area, and also whether there have been attempts to breach your existing security.
Sometimes you may need to re-evaluate your security, and the risks to see whether you have achieved an acceptable level of protection. You need to get your security to as close to 100 per cent as possible, and always have the option to add to your protection by installing CCTV, or electronic surveillance systems.
Always remember that it is not possible to make your property 100 per cent secure, as a determined criminal will still try and find a way through.
In very high crime areas, it is also a good idea to belong to an armed response group. You need to do everything you can to ensure you have peace of mind and feel safe and secure in your home.
You need to check periodically that there have been no significant changes in the risk factors in the area you live.
If there have been any real changes, you need to up your security in order to meet the new challenges.
