Unfortunately, our district has experienced a number of dwelling burglary's over the past week. These burglaries have occurred when the occupants are not home.
Forced entry burglaries are usually organised with an element of planning and targeting, with the offenders having an idea of which property they wish to steal. The aim in preventing these crimes is to try to make the target less appealing.
I would advise that if you are away, to consider using timer switches on a light or two within your property. This make your home appear occupied & therefore less appealing to potential burglars.
(For emergencies, crimes in progress or if somebody is in immediate danger, always call 999)
