Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


IMPORTANT MESSAGE
 
Dear Residents
 
Previous to our last alert regarding Burglaries in Aldershot, please find below crime prevention advice and police witness appeal.
 
Over the past few weeks we have received many reports of residential burglaries. Person(s) unknown have been forcing entry into from both front and rear door using various tools or by simply smashing the glass. They appeared to be targeting cash and jewellery. Please do not leave any valuables on display at home and keep them in a secured location (i.e. safe box or bank vault)
 
We would like to draw your attention to the below crime prevention advice to deter burglars.
 
Advice:
  • Check your insurance documents for any specific security requirements or upgrades.
  • Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property.
  • Ensure rear fencing is in good repair.
  • Lock all windows and doors, remembering to double lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn the key)
  • Keep all keys out of reach and sight from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through letterbox).
  • Do not leave ladders and garden tools in your garden, lock them away in your shed.
  • Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property i.e. trim high hedges.
  • Consider fitting security lighting and a burglar alarm.
  • Mark your property with postcode and house number and register your property for free with www.immobilise.com
  • Make use of timer switches to make the property appear occupied.
  • Get a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property.
  • Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch scheme.
  • Remove valuables from view of ground floor windows.
  • Store any high value items (i.e. jewellery, passports) in a properly secured safe or bank vault.
     
Report suspicious activity to the police on 101 or anonymously via the crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
