Normal topicPolice advice to avoid becoming victim of housebreaking this autumn

Recently a Dick Place resident returned from holiday to find their front letterbox damaged with what looked like perhaps a crowbar and that external security lights had been disabled.

It is suspected the letterbox damage may have been to try to gain access, but no access gained.

It's worth bumping up this previous entry from the Police, at this time of year.

    * If you’re going away or even going out for the evening, set a timer switch to turn your lights on when it gets dark. Unlit houses are a giveaway that no one is at home.
    * Remember to lock your doors, patios and downstairs windows. Also lock any windows on the first floor where access can be gained via a flat roof.
    * If you’re at the rear of the house or in the garden, lock your front doors and windows. This simple act will deter opportunistic criminals.
    * If you have a house alarm… USE IT. Make sure you set it when you go out and when you go to bed.
    * Don’t leave car keys, ID cards, or valuables near windows, doors or letterboxes, where thieves can reach through to steal them.
    * Lock your garden gates and side entrances. Don’t leave tools lying around in the garden which could be used to break in to your home.
    * Property mark your valuables.
    * Register your property on Immobilise, the UK national property register https://www.immobilise.com/
    * Register bikes on https://www.bikeregister.com/
