Shed Burglaries/Cycle Thefts -
Park Ward officers are aware that there has been an increase in shed burglaries and cycle thefts in certain areas of the ward. We are conducting patrols in these areas to prevent further offences and to identify suspects.
If you have a garden shed please ensure that it is locked, we do advise that any cycles or equipment inside the shed should also be secured to prevent them just being removed if the shed is broken into.
If you do see anyone acting suspiciously in your area, please take time to report it to us, we do take these reports seriously and use them to plan our patrols.
You can register your property free on www.immobilise.com, this helps police to identify the owners of property that is recovered.
Following information received from residents, we are currently looking at some addresses in relation to the handling and selling of stolen bikes. We are building on the initial reports, so we are able to look at obtaining search warrants for these identified addresses.
