Experienced Stockwell locksmith
Stockwell was once one of the most impoverished areas of London however due to recent redevelopments, great transport links and close proximity to the city, the area is on the up and up.
Stockwell is located in the borough of Lambeth which reported a total of 34844 in 2015 which makes it the 6th highest crime borough in the capital. Of this 2653 were residential and commercial burglaries. In the ward of Stockwell the number of total crime reported was 1373 of which 83 were burglaries which is relatively low. However this is by no means an excuse to neglect your security. Many of the burglaries in the borough or ward could have been prevented if more thought was put into home and business security.
Tips from our Locksmith
- According to the Evening Standard there were 46,259 household burglaries in London in 2014 and the police only solved 2,918 which equals only 6%, back in 2011 this number was 12%. These terrible figures are thought to be down to cuts in the police budget putting ever more pressure on front line staff and as a result, investigations into burglaries have been put back on the list of police proprieties. Protecting your home is not just down to the police, it is down to you, and with the police no longer putting the resources needed to fight this crime the empathies is on you. We can be a very cooperative partner in this, just give us a call and see how we can help you.
- Keypad locks are used by many businesses and are a great way to keep certain areas of the building off limits to unauthorised personnel, as the usually means of overcoming locks such as picking are rendered useless. The only real downside of using such a system is the code can easily be told to others. So to overcome such problems we suggest using both a key lock and a keypad lock this means in order to access the room you would need to know the code and have possession of the key.
- If you have a wooden door, ensure it is not hollow as even the weakest of criminals can break through. If it is hollow replace it asap with a door which is at least 44mm thick and is fitted with a 5 leaver mortice lock.
