1st Choice Fits Automatic Gates in Harpenden

A trip down the picturesque High Street in Harpenden would be unlikely to convince you that it’s a crime hot spot. Surprisingly, though, it gets more than its fair share of attention from burglars because of its affluence, and its proximity to Luton. Chief Inspector Shane O’Neill recently updated residents on the efforts of local police to prevent and detect burglaries in the area:

“Harpenden is covered by 24/7 uniformed intervention teams who respond to 999 and many other non-emergency calls, plus dedicated Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) officers, including PCSOs and Specials, who are based at Harpenden Police Station. They are supported by detectives in our Local Crime Unit, who investigate a range of crimes including burglaries and robberies.”

Additionally, he encouraged residents to take whatever measures they could to ensure that their homes and vehicles were protected against criminals. Amongst the examples given he urged businesses and homeowners to make their premises as unattractive as possible to burglars looking for an easy target.

1st Choice is a Security Gate Installer in Harpenden

When home or business owners ask our specialist security engineers how best to protect their premises, we’ll normally suggest the installation of electric gates. The reason for this is that they send out a clear message about attitudes towards security. If you encounter a Harpenden home with professionally installed electric gates, you know that the owners take security seriously. Often this is enough to deter opportunistic burglars.
