Dear Resident(s),

Police have been made aware of a residential premises along Colbred Close in Ancells Farm that has been the unfortunate target of a dwelling burglary on Wednesday the 20th of February between the hours of 16:40 and 19:30. We are interested in any information that might assist with our investigations for the incident, did you see or hear anything out of the ordinary? If the answer is yes, please call 101 and quote reference number 44190062432.

Please ensure that your property is kept locked and secure at all times. If you are away from your property for a long period it is a good idea to get a neighbour to keep an eye on your property until your return. Please put valuables away in a safe place, this includes car keys, money and jewelry. Don't leave valuables on show near doors or windows.

A checklist of things you can do to improve your security:-
• If you wish to install an alarm make sure the company is approved by the NSI or SSAIB.

• All external doors should be fitted with quality locks confirming to British Standard BS3621.

• All windows should be fitted with key-operated locks. You are able to buy DIY fit locks for almost every type of window. If you are considering replacing any of your windows, check they conform to BS9750 Windows of Enhanced Security.

• French windows and patio doors should be fitted with a multi-point locking system with three or more hook bolts.

• If you are looking to replace any external door consider replacing with one that meets the standard PAS 24 2016.

• Make sure your garage is locked. The addition of a padlock or locking bar will improve the security. There are many different security products available to assist in securing a garage. A link door between the garage and the house should be treated as any other external door.

• Side access or entry points into the rear garden should be gated and locked. Rear garden fences / walls should be 1.8m in height and topped with trellis to prevent somebody from climbing over.

• Sheds should have locks fitted to doors and windows and any expensive tools or ladders locked to a secure anchor point.

• Use timer switches to switch lights on when you are not in to make the home look occupied.

• If you are not already a member, consider joining or starting a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.
