If you have a burglar alarm please use it and make sure all other security devices such as outside lights or CCTV are working correctly.
With Christmas around the corner people are going to be collecting numerous presents for the family and friends. Please make sure that you make note of any serial numbers from electrical goods purchased and do not leave any presents in view of any windows. This may attract unwanted attention.
In comparison with the previous month, we have seen a small increase in criminal damage incidents. If you see anyone committing acts of criminal damage to property please contact 101 and provide as much detail on location and offending person’s description.
