Burglaries (Dwelling / Non Dwelling)
Over recent weeks we have received a number of reports relating to incidents of burglar against outbuildings, farm buildings and also residential properties resulting in some high value equipment being taken.
Burglary of homes or gardens can be devastating for victims and the force are committed to deterring and prosecuting burglars. However, we are keen to stop burglary in the first place and need you and other homeowners to play their part by taking steps to prevent offences and make homes and property unappealing targets for thieves.
We work hard to prevent burglary and bring offenders to justice, however there are actions that householders can take to reduce the risk of being burgled.
Often many homes are left unsecured with doors and windows left open or unlocked, which provide easy access for a thief.

To further support the prevention of crime i our communities, we have been working with North Lincolnshire council and launched Trade Watch to help stop residents in rural areas being a target of crime.
The voluntary scheme has been created following reports of door step crime across the county.
It will enable residents to feel safe in their community and send out a clear message that rogue traders and criminal activity will not be accepted.
As part of the scheme, residents will agree not to commit to any work offered on the doorstep and report any suspicious companies or activities to the police.
Residents in rural areas can sign up to the scheme, once they do, they will receive a Trade Watch window sticker and supporting information.
Where full streets or villages take part in the scheme, street signs are available for them to display.
Living in a Trade Watch area will reduce the risk of being approached or becoming a victim of door step crime.
