According to Wikipedia, vandalism is the action involving deliberate destruction of or damage to public or private property. Vandalism is a crime in the UK under the Criminal Damage Act 1971.

The Metropolitan Police have given advice on how to protect an individual’s property against vandalism. There are a few numbered points given in the article. The first point is to keep the property visible. Hiding the property behind tall walls and hedges can make for a tempting target. It is a good idea to make sure neighbours and the public can see the property clearly from the street so that the property can be seen at all times.

Creating a boundary allows the homeowners to mark his property, to show anyone who crosses that boundary is trespassing. This can be done in a number of ways such as; low brick walls, fences, flower beds, or shrubbery.

Another tip is to keep the property tidy. Leaving rubbish lying around makes the property unattractive, therefore inviting other people to also litter on your property.
