Good Evening,

We have recently had reports of suspicious males looking in peoples back gardens, we would like to remind residents to follow this prevention advice & if you do see anything suspicious please call 101 or in an emergency 999.

1. 1 in 3 burglaries occur due to an open or unlocked window or door. Keep doors and windows locked where possible.

2. Make thieves feel exposed when they approach your property by using low fences & hedging on your accessible boundaries.

3. Use sensor lighting in the garden to deter trespassers.

4. Don't leave tools & ladders around your garden as it makes them accessible for burglars to use.

5. Ensure your shed & any out buildings are secure using a good quality hasp & staple with a closed shackle padlock.

6. Keep valuables out of sight of windows and letterboxes, particularly phones, tablets & car keys.

7. Make items traceable. Write your postcode on property with a UV pen or consider specialist traceable liquid products which carry a forensic 'code'

8. Register the details of your property at . This website helps police identify the owners of lost & stolen property.

Remember if you see anything suspicious please call 101.
