News from Neighbourhood Watch

Our PCSO Andy Wood tells us of:

Another burglary dwelling in Hardingstone.

This one in Coldstream Lane. That's 6 since 19th April. Bikes & tools usually stolen.

This tells us to Think like a thief.
It's worth having a good padlock on the door with no exposed screws. Are hinges strong?

Alarm it.
Consider a battery-operated shed alarm. They look low key but they respond to movement or door contact with an extremely loud siren.

Secure your bike to the ground or a lockable stand within a locked shed or garage.

It's always worth draping an old sheet or blanket over the top of mowers or bikes to keep them covered from view. Invest in a garage door stop.

Paint your postcode on power tools.
