Lock it And Stop it

Update: this service will not be available after June 2017

Lambeth Council is a lead member of the Safer Lambeth Partnership and as part of our anti-burglary campaign we are advising residents to take simple steps to help protect their homes as well as offering our pro-active service called Lock It & Stop It.

Lock It & Stop It is a council funded scheme offered to Lambeth residents providing FREE security upgrades to your home, working in partnership with the police and a team of specialist locksmiths we’re already making homes across the borough safer and secure.

We are happy that Lambeth is currently benefiting from a 25% reduction in burglary. That’s around 652 fewer victims of burglary in the last 12 months. Working together, we can progress to even more reductions.

Lock It & Stop It  can provide eligible residents with FREE security upgrades such as:

  • Lock Upgrade
  • Window Fasteners
  • Property Marking Kit
  • Spy Holes / Door Chains / Sash Jammers
  • Property Marked Warning Stickers
  • General Security Advice

Be Vigilant and Secure your home

Use these simple steps to secure your home and keep criminals out:

  • Lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house
  • Hide all the keys, including car key, out of sight and away from the letter box.
  • Leave the radios or lights in your property on a timer to make your home appear occupied.

If you are a Lambeth resident and have been a victim of burglary or would like to receive a free security assessment contact the Lambeth Community Safety Service on 020 7926 2733.
