Burglaries No Longer A Police Priority

This morning I watched some of Victoria Derbyshire’s news programme on the BBC.  She had a studio interview with Sara Thornton, Chair of the National Police Chiefs Council, about the changes to policing that we must expect.  It is upsetting news for victims of burglary as it will not be investigated with any urgency.  Cases of burglary will not be a priority to attend as quickly as they have been in the past and ‘they may attend to collect evidence’, does that mean that they may not attend at all?  Good news for the burglars, bad news for victims – you’re on your own!

Shed and Garage Security – Week 4 NHSM.

Shed and Garage Security

Check your garden.  Don’t leave anything lying around that a thief could use to break in and steal your possessions.

Figures show that burglaries can increase by up to 20% at this time of year and sheds and garages are an attractive proposition to thieves during winter, as they are often left unattended in the cover of darkness.

For added protection, use a ground anchor and padlocks and chains to secure expensive items in your shed.

Statistics show that less than 5% of bikes stolen in the UK are ever returned.

Hot Weather This Weekend

BURGLARS LOVE HOT WEATHER.

If you are going out this weekend make sure you have secured all your windows and doors properly, don’t give them an opportunity.

Whatever you’re doing have a lovely time.
