It sounds as if security lights which are sensitive to movement and are incredibly bright would also be a good idea, but I have no idea who would fit them.
speak to the neighborhood watch team for your area. They will up the team that do foot patrol in your area and they will also offer advice.
Pauline is the local co ordinator of the program. If your street doesnt have a neighborhood watch rep, perhaps you would be willing to? This then allows signs to be put up on your street that the residents have formed a watch - preventiative to potential burglers that neighbors are watching out for each other and organised. Essentially the role is a contact point between residents and the MET to solve any residents concerns.
I know of a house around the corner from ours that has a video camera installed above their front door. Even a non working one might be a deterent?
Before I bought it my flat was rented out to various people - it had been vacant for some time, but I replaced the locks just to be sure. I now have ABS locks which are apparently virtually burglar-proof. Also insurance companies love them and it can make insurance premiums cheaper depending on the company.
You are lucky you have such a great neighbour! But can you just describe me how an Eastern European looks like? I mean what is an Eastern European appearance? Just curious. Thanks
I'm honestly wondering what an 'Eastern European appearance' means. They guy in the van had 'Lenin mustache', the woman wearing a jacket under the brand name 'KURVA'? lol
