Garage Break HOLST CLOSE

Alert message sent 29/11/2020 09:02:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Dear Residents,
 
Between the 24th and 28th November 2020 a padlocked garage in HOLST CLOSE was broken into and two bicycles and a Karcher pressure washer were stolen.
 
The following section provides prevention and reduction tactics in relation to shed and garage security.
Advice:

Secure more expensive items, e.g. mowers, bikes to an anchor point within the shed or garage.

Mark all items with postcode and record serial numbers. e.g. UV pens or forensic marking kits. Register the details for free on www.immobilise.com

Take photographs of items such as statues and garden furniture if they are unusual, for easy identification at a later date.

Fit a shed/garage alarm.

Keep the structure in good repair.

Consider covering windows with curtains to obscure the view of the contents.

Consider external lighting. (Make sure your light shines only where needed: a light angled downwards can be more effective than one angled outwards)
 
Kind regards
PCSO Doherty
