Crime prevention

Alert message sent 21/08/2019 22:51:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police


In light of recent burglaries and thefts reported to the police here are some crime prevention tips to deter/ stop such incidents happening :

A few handy crime prevention messages -

Lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house, even when you're just out in the garden, remembering to double-lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn key).

Hide all keys, including car keys, out of sight and away from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through the letterbox).

Install a visual burglar alarm (as part of a suite of prevention measures - a burglar alarm on its own will not prevent entry to your home).

Install good outside lighting.

Leave radios or lights in your house on a timer to make the property appear occupied.

Make sure the fences around your garden are in good condition.

Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property i.e. trim high hedges.

Mark your property with postcode and house number and register your property for free with Immobilise (opens in a new window).

Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch scheme.

Remove valuables from view of ground floor windows
Store any high value items (i.e. jewellery, passports) in a properly secured safe or bank vault.

Stay safe.
