HOT SPOTS: Coast’s hardest hit streets for break-ins

While the holiday period is a good excuse for families to let their hair down, police are reminding Sunshine Coast homeowners to keep their guard up.

Noosa police officer Sergeant Neil Ashley said there were a number of precautions families could take to keep their home and contents safe.

He said when offenders entered a house they would generally be looking for simple things to steal like car keys, money and jewellery.

By locking up your valuable items sand making a record of them it makes it that much harder for the crooks.

"Even if you take a photograph or jot down the serial numbers, if we can track the property we can prove it was stolen," Sgt Ashley said.

Staying in the good books with your neighbour could be of more benefit than just an easy place to borrow a mower.

"When you go away tell your neighbours what you are up to so they know what to expect," Sgt Ashley said.
