Burglary appeal and crime prevention

Alert message sent 09/11/2018 16:21:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary




Dear Resident


Please be aware that we have had numerous reports of burglary in the Aldershot area. The purpose of this newsletter is not to frighten you but to raise your awareness and ask you to be extra vigilant. Criminals have be forcing or gaining entry into the property by the rear and front doors. They have entered various properties conducted untidy searches and stolen items inside including cash and jewellery. Do you have any information that could assist us? Have you seen any suspicious activity in your area?



There are certain measures you can take to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim yourself, such as:


• Don’t leave valuables on show through unscreened windows.

• If you are going away, ask a neighbour or friend to check your house regularly, pulling curtains when your timer switches are due to come on.

• Buy timer switches for lamps and radios to give the impression that someone is home.

• Install an alarm system and ensure the alarm box is clearly visible.

• Don’t leave keys in doors – remove them and keep them close at hand but out of sight where you can easily find them in an emergency.

• Don’t leave your house unattended with windows open and unlocked – even for just a minute.

• If you are in the garden or upstairs, make sure your downstairs doors and windows are closed.

• Never leave a key under a doormat or on a string through the letterbox.


Report suspicious activity to the police on 101 or 999 if needed. You can also call anonymously via the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.

Kind regards
