With the main holiday season nearly upon us, police would like to remind all members of the following:
. Try to make your home look occupied even when it is not – using lights or a radio on a “talk” station set on a timer can help to make it look as though you are in;
. Consider asking a neighbour to open and close curtains that are usually drawn on a daily basis;
. If you are normally in the habit of parking a car on your driveway, when going away on holiday try to arrange for a neighbour to park their vehicle in its place;
. Remember to cancel regular deliveries.
If you have information about any crime, phone the police on 101 or you can call anonymously to the independent charity CRIMESTOPPERS 0800 555 111. For general information about Neighbourhood Watch nationally see the www.ourwatch.org.uk website.
