Crime Prevention Advice

Alert message sent 21/07/2021 15:19:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Hampshire Constabulary is reminding residents to take the following advice during the summer months:
  • Keep ground-floor or accessible windows shut and locked in rooms you are not using.
  • If you are doing DIY, always put away ladders and tools.
  • Make sure you lock side or rear gates which provide access into your garden.
  • Do not do business at the door. Companies who tout at the door for gardening and home improvements often turn out to be bogus.
  • When you are in your back garden, remember to keep the front door locked.
  • Check the security of sheds and garages.
  • Check the boundary fence and walls to ensure they are in good order, and foliage is trimmed back for good visibility.
  • If you have a UPVC door, ensure you turn the key as well as lifting the handle to properly lock it.
  • When leaving your house always remember to close the windows.
  • If you are buying new garden tools or outside equipment, mark with your house number and postcode and register for free at www.immobilise.com.
We hope you find this information helpful.
