Garden Crime Burbage

Alert message sent 06/08/2020 15:54:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

We were due to attend the Burbage Horticultural Event, which will not take place due to COVID-19. We regularly attend events like this within our community to support with crime reduction.

Whilst out patrolling over recent months, I have seen some fantastic gardens and many of you have gone to great effort and put lots of hard work into your garden. Please protect your property.

I thought Neighbourhood Link would be a good way of still getting our message across regarding garden crime. This type of crime can rise over the coming months as more people go on holiday and leave properties unattended.

Items that get targetted include Bicycles, tools, mopeds and lawnmowers.

I have attached a few leaflets which I hope you find useful including types of plants you can grow and some simple security advice.

I also work with our local Police volunteer to offer our local community a range of crime reduction products such as cactus spikes for fences, shed alarms, window alarms and UV property marking pens. These products are sold at cost so click on reply at the bottom of this Email if you would like more information.

Remember though. regularly check your outside areas. Lock up your shed. Use locks and alarms where possible and make it difficult for criminals to access back gardens. DO NOT leave items lying about on show.

Thanks for reading and please ask family and friends to sign up.

Kind regards,

Darren 6035
