Home Security

More than 100 households took up our offer of free security improvements to their home.

This offer was made available to all residents in the Secure Redoubt area so they would feel safer in their homes and within the community.

The security enhancements were fitted by approved local locksmiths, Armoury Security + Fire and Lock Shop Warehouse, and included devices such as window locks, door bolts, door chains, door viewers, letterbox visor guards, shed and gate locks, and solar powered security lights.

Here are some comments from Secure Redoubt residents:

Armoury Security + Fire

"Security light and back gate lock fitted today. Armoury Security + Fire did the work... they were professional, efficient and incredibly helpful.... so pleased as this now means the back of the property is not just more secure but enables me to use it, especially as the passageway was cleared in the last few months."

Lock Shop Warehouse

"Thank you very much for all the free security equipment, locks , etc. Geoff from The Lock Shop in Old Town was very good. Good job all round."

Armoury Security + Fire

"Rob from Armoury Security + Fire came to put up some PIR (passive infrared) lights, a lock on our shed and some work to our back kitchen door... he did a lovely job... well pleased with Secure Redoubt!!!. Thank you for your help!!"
