Have you seen our LockupLightup crime prevention video

Alert message sent 15/12/2018 22:59:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Dear Members of South Leicester
Hello, hope you all are well. I just wanted to mention during this week there has been a few Theft from Motor Vehicles in the area of South Leicester. There were also cases of number plates being stolen from vehicles as well. Please could I urge vehicle owners to purchase security screws. These screws are designed that once they are fixed they cannot be taken out due to the design of the screws.
These are available from Wigston Police Station front enquiry desk (Whilst Stock Lasts). Please also remember when securing your vehicle to also check the door handle to ensure that your vehicle is properly locked and most important not to have anything inside on display. 

Having checked previous crime stats for last year after Christmas there has been a few shed breaks as well in 2017. This could be that when hard working people receive such lovely gifts such as bikes, power tools, garden equipment etc. The criminals know that people will be storing these in their sheds. I will be posting further information shortly relating to Shed security.  

Further to our campaign #LockUpLightUp during the darker nights. We are urging members to please utilise timer lights to MIMIC that someone is at home. If you have a smart heating system you can purchase smart lights and sensors so they can use alongside with your heating system. If you need help or advice then please let me know.
Please see link below for our Darker Nights crime prevention video, staring your Neighbourhood Link PCSO Ali. This is from our Facebook and Twitter pages. Hopefully you should still be able to view them but let me know if you have any difficulties.
Stay Safe
PCSO Ali Haq
Wigston Police Station.
