OP BANISH - Burglary update

In the build up to Christmas you will se us on patrol throughout the New Forest. Its part of the #OpHawkHants work we’ve been carrying out to tackle burglary. Great result with (outcome/suspected stolen property recovered). 

Remember to keep your valuables and Christmas presents out of sight of opportunistic thieves through your windows.

Here are some other tips that can help to keep your home secure:

  • Add as many layers of security to make accessing your home more difficult. This could include installing CCTV or video doorbells – which can then be used for evidential purposes in the event of a crime.
  • A house that appears occupied is less likely to be targeted by burglars, installing light switch timers inside the house can help make it appear occupied. Likewise, dusk to dawn or sensor lighting to the front and rear of your home can help deter potential thieves.
  • Keep high value, easily portable jewellery and equipment from being visible through a window and don’t forget to register them at immobilise.com
