We'd remind everyone they can help to keep their neighbourhood safe by reporting suspicious incidents.

If you see someone acting suspiciously around a neighbour’s property, call us straight away. If they’re obviously breaking in, ring 999.

Otherwise, call the non-emergency number 101: operators are on hand 24/7.

To keep your own home secure officers advise:

  • locking up and setting the alarm, if you have one, at night as well as when you go out
  • making sure your door is locked by turning the key – some 'paddle and stub'-handled doors might seem to be locked by lifting the handle, but can still be opened from outside
  • never leaving the key in the lock or in sight of the letterbox
  • fitting a letterbox cage
  • fitting motion-sensing security lights around your property
  • keeping tools locked up in a secure shed or garage
  • making sure garden furniture and wheelie bins can’t be moved to gain access to upstairs windows
  • joining Neighbourhood Watch
