A timely message from Thames Valley Police: make sure you don't invite opportunist criminals this weekend

As the weather is warming up please take a moment to ensure that opportunist criminals don't have easy access to your belongings:

  • If you are in your back garden make sure that all windows and doors at the front of your home are secured. It only takes a moment someone to reach in, or climb in and steal easily accessible items.
  • Make sure you don't leave handbags, mobiles, keys etc near to an open window.
  • When you go to bed take a moment to double check all your doors and windows are secure, especially easily accessed ones.
  • Make sure your garden tools and equipment are locked away in a shed and are marked as belonging to you.
  • Don't leave out ladders that could be used to access a 1st floor window. Chain them up.
  • Lock bicycles away.
  • If you are going away, tell a trusted neighbour and ask them to keep an eye on your property.
  • Report anyone acting suspiciously to the police on 101, or if you think a crime is in progress dial on 999

Following some of these simple precautions will reduce the opportunities for thieves.

We hope your enjoy a safe and crime free bank holiday weekend, whatever you are doing.
