Home Security

Good Afternoon, 


After a recent spate of burglaries across the Charnwood North area we would like to remind you of some home security advice.

  • Keep doors and windows locked at all times - even if you pop outside to the garden
  • Always keep valuables, bags, cash and keys out of sight and in a safe place.
  • Install and set a home security alarm system. Utilise home security lighting to act as a deterrent.
  • Prevent easy access to the back and sides of property with locked gates or fencing.
  • Make sure your house looks occupied by using automatic timer switches to turn on lights when it gets dark, even if you're out for a few hours.
  • If you're going away, don't advertise on social media.
  • Register your belongings with www.immobilise.com
  • The beat team are going to be completing regular high visibility foot and marked vehicle patrols across all areas of the beat and we shall be at Tesco in Sileby from 1000am until 1200pm on Sunday 3rd December should you have any concerns you wish to raise with us.


    If you see anything suspicious, call us on 999 in an emergency, alternatively 101 or via social media in a non emergency.
