Crime Prevention Advice

Alert message sent 19/09/2019 15:35:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Most burglars are opportunist thieves. You can reduce the risk of becoming a victim of burglary by taking a few simple security measures to make your property less attractive during the autumn and winter months:
When going out, remember to light up your home using timer switches or a TV simulator.

Don’t leave valuables or cash on display and store your house and car keys away from your letterbox.

Move bins away from any side gates to prevent easy access into your property.

Lock any tools away to prevent them being used to break into your home.

Consider fitting a motion activated external light or installing a CCTV system.

Finally, mark your valuables using a UV pen and register them on the national property register at www.immobilise.com.
