Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland

Crime Prevention Advice – Pollockshields, Glasgow

Neighbourhood Watch Scotland have received a report of a break in and attempted break ins to several houses in the Pollockshields area recently.

To reduce the risk of your home being targeted we would suggest:

Maximise the natural surveillance around your home so that criminals know they can be seen

Use your existing security (such as door locks) at all times. Even when you are in.

Consider fitting improved security hardware (use only Secured By Design products)

Fit dusk to dawn lighting around your home

Forensically mark your property (photograph valuable items to aid identification)

Fit an approved and monitored alarm system

Consider the use of fixed safes for valuable items

Don’t leave garden tools unattended and in open view (these can be used to compromise existing security)

Further advice is available on the following link:


If you saw or see anything suspicious contact Police on 101 or 999 if an emergency. You can also contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you have any information and want to remain anonymous
