Burglary Alert

Alert message sent 06/10/2020 09:43:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


You may be aware that there has recently been a series of burglaries/Shed Break-ins within the Highfield Avenue & Upper St Michaels Grove area of Fareham. The purpose of this update is not to frighten you but to raise your awareness and ask you to be extra vigilant.

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 anonymously via the CrimeStoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
