GENERAL CRIME PREVENTION ADVICE – please read
SHED AND OUTBUILDING CRIME PREVENTION ADVICE – please read
There have been a number of shed and garage breaks in the area, please make sure your sheds and equipment are secure.
Many people take a great deal of trouble in securing their home and property while at the same time leaving valuable gardening tools and cycles in a shed that is either unlocked or not maintained.
Garden crime is now becoming more and more common. Tools such as lawn mowers, strimmers, hedge cutters, power tools are expensive items to replace and may incur in extra insurance premiums.
CAR CRIME ADVICE TO BE AWARE – We are still getting reports of theft from vehicles. This is a reminder to all ……PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLE ITEMS IN VEHICLES Please remain vigilant and if you see any suspicious person/s or vehicles in the area please report on 101
NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH – we are looking to set up Neighbourhood Watches in all areas of the rural. If you have some spare time and wish to help in assisting or setting up a Neighbourhood watch in your area please contact me.
Property Security – Register your items for free at www.immobilise.com using this service will assist the police in returning property to the rightful owner.
