Burglary Crime Prevention

Alert message sent 08/11/2019 15:15:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police


Good Afternoon,

Across the West Midlands we have recently seen a rise in burglaries where offenders are using ladders belonging to the homeowner to access upstairs windows. Although this type of offence is not commonplace in your area, I would recommend that your ladders are stored away where possible. If this isn't possible, you could put a bike lock (or similar) around the rungs of the ladder to prevent it from being extended.

Please also look out for your neighbours, and pass this advice on if needed.
