Police suggest simple way to prevent break-ins
Police are suggesting that Langley residents make an inexpensive purchase to help combat a recent spike in the use of pry bars to open locked doors.
Police are recommending the installation of an ‘astragal plate’ to protect the locking mechanism. These plates are designed to add security to the door by protecting the lock from being jimmied.
The screw fixings are countersunk in the door’s edge so they cannot be accessed when the door is closed.
