Thames Valley Police in Aylesbury Vale starts its winter burglary operation today, Monday 27th October, to combat dwelling burglaries and raise awareness on how to keep safe during the darker winter months.
Officers will be increasing patrols in areas of Aylesbury Vale in order to deter burglars. Residents are asked to be aware that as the clocks went back on Sunday (26th October), it is the perfect time to check that your house is not vulnerable to opportunist thieves. Please follow the prevention tips on the Police website.
Thames Valley Police is working in partnership with Aylesbury Vale District Council, which is encouraging residents to keep their houses safe and secure during the winter period.
Supt Olly Wright, Local Police Area Commander for Aylesbury Vale said: "With the clocks having gone back over the weekend, it is a great reminder for residents to check their home security and get the most up to date crime prevention advice.
"We will have an increase in targeted police patrols and be providing tips on how you can best protect your home and belongings via our social media channels, such as @TVP_Aylesbury.
"We are working closely with our partners to ensure residents remain safe during the upcoming winter period. If you have any concerns or just want some advice and information, approach your local neighbourhood officers who will be there to assist you.
"Finally, I would urge residents to get in touch with any information they may have in relation to criminal activity occurring in their neighbourhood. We require the help of the public and will treat any information with the strictest of confidentiality."
Residents in Aylesbury Vale can follow crime prevention advice which is available on the Thames Valley Police (opens new window) website or on Twitter @ThamesVP or for localised information they can follow the Aylesbury Twitter account @TVP_Aylesbury.
