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!

Locking Your Multi Point Lock (MPL) Door

I am seeing an astonishing number of people who do not know how to correctly lock their multi point locking doors, they just pull them closed behind them when they go out – the door isn’t locked. Please remember to lock it properly by lifting the handle and turning your key in the lock, if you don’t it is just latched and easy for a burglar to bypass without damage giving issues with any insurance claim.
