Neighbourhood Alert Advice

Posted: Mon, 10 Dec 2018 10:34 by Alison Grantham

The festive season is a time for giving, but sadly also for taking – the dark nights, social occasions, gifts and increased cash people have on them mean there are lots of attractive opportunities for criminals. We're working hard to keep you safe, but there are simple steps you can take to help us. At home More »

  • Don't leave Christmas presents under your tree if they are in view of windows or doors. Make sure windows and doors are kept locked
  • Property-mark presents and valuables with your postcode, house number or name, then register them with Immobilise at http://www.immoblise.com/. Note down model numbers and serial numbers of all electrical items
  • Never keep large amounts of cash at home and check you have adequate home insurance
  • Be mindful of what you post on social media – don't advertise you have expensive new gifts or that you're out and your home is therefore empty
  • Make your house look occupied if you're not at home. Invest in a timer to turn your lights on or, if you can, ask a family member or neighbour to pop in and do it. If they can also open and close your curtains at random times of the day it helps prevent criminals from seeing a pattern, making it harder for them to target your home
  • Dispose of boxes and rubbish discreetly. Leaving boxes outside will give away the fact that you have new and valuable items in the house

Cuppa with a Copper

Posted: Mon, 10 Dec 2018 10:24 by Alison Grantham

Today I will be attending No.50 cafe, Main road, Duston between the times of 1300hrs and 1430hrs. The purpose of that is so that I will be there to answer any questions or if there are any concerns that anyone may have and all this can be done over a nice cuppa. I will also have a variety of leaflets and door stickers if anyone would like to pick up some crime prevention advice. I hope to see some of you there. More »
