Suspicious incidents - Wellow

Alert message sent 05/03/2020 10:57:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Dear residents,
 
Please be aware we have had suspicious people/vehicles reported to us in your area over the previous few days. Please use this as a reminder to protect yourself from becoming a victim of crime, specifically burglary.
 
Register an account with Immobilise at www.immobilise.com. This allows you to register your property, and gives you a far better chance of getting it back if it is lost or stolen.
 
To help protect yourself from a dwelling burglary, please make sure to:
 
- Lock ALL doors & windows, even if you are in the house.
- Install CCTV to capture activity on your premises. Consider putting cameras that aren’t as visible to capture individual’s faces.
- Leave all valuables out of sight, this removes the temptation.
- Make it look as if you are home if you aren’t by leaving a radio on, light timer switches etc.
- Shut all curtains and blinds at night.
- Consider a house alarm, and set it every time you leave your property.

To help protect yourself from a non-dwelling burglary, please make sure to:
 
- Lock ALL outbuildings/sheds.
- Install motion lighting.
- Install CCTV to capture activity on your premises.
- Install an alarm. Battery powered alarms can be used as a valuable deterrent.
- Make it as hard as possible for a possible offender to get in and out of your property.

You can see more valuable crime prevention advise on our website at: https://www.hampshire.police.uk/cp/crime-prevention/residential-burglary/
 
Please make sure to report ALL suspicious incidents to your local Police, even if you don’t think it is of any use, it very well may be to us. You can report suspicious incidents through 101 or online at: https://www.hampshire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/soh/something-youve-seen-or-heard/. If you think someone is breaking into yours or your neighbour’s property/outbuilding, phone 999.
 
Stay safe,
