What's Happening In Your Area

March - There has been an increase in burglaries in the ward area. Two dwelling burglaries, two garage burglaries and one shed burglary.  (Holderness).   
Most burglars are not master criminals – they’re opportunists.  In nearly a third of all reported burglaries the residents had left windows or a door open.
By taking some simple precautions you can make your home a safer place.
• Keep doors and windows locked even when you are at home
• Make your home appear occupied, at all times, by using timer switches
• Hide vehicle keys and don’t leave valuables on display
• If you have a garage, use it to keep your car secure
