Darker nights crime prevention advice

Staffordshire Police is reminding residents to take simple crime prevention measures this autumn as burglaries often increase at this time of year.

This reminder comes following a spate of break-ins reported across the county in the past week, as burglars take advantage of the longer hours of darkness.

Crime prevention doesn't have to cost a lot of money, there are simple measures you can take to make your home look occupied and reduce your chances of being a victim.

To keep opportunist burglars at bay:


* Always keep doors and windows locked, even when you're in. Remove the keys from the lock and keep them out of view or reach.

* Use timer switches to turn lights on when you are out. Alternate the times and lights that you use.

* Make sure your alarm and any outside lights are in working order. Always activate your alarm when you leave the house and go to bed.

* Don't leave items of value on show through ground floor windows
(i.e. laptops, tablets, mobile phones, car keys etc.

* Lock your garden gates and side entrances. Keep ladders and tools securely stored away, don't leave them outside where they could be used to break
into your home.

* Look out for your neighbours, especially the elderly and report any
suspicious activity immediately.

* Consider joining our Smart Alert scheme when you can receive localised crime alerts and prevention advice from your local police officers.

Secure your vehicle


We are reminding vehicle owners to check their vehicle security following an increase in the number of thefts of, and from motor vehicles.
Most vehicle crime is opportunist and therefore preventable.
We would always advise and remind owners of the following:-
* Ensure your vehicle is locked and secure whenever left. Always check your doors - don't rely on remote
locking fobs.
* Remove all valuables and possessions when the vehicle is unattended.
* Always garage your vehicle or park on a driveway, or in well lit areas, wherever possible.
* Consider installing tracker devices - in the event your vehicle is stolen - it can be located quickly.
* Consider blocking high value vehicles in with a second vehicle... simple but it works!
* Store keyless entry car fobs in a Faraday pouch to block signal from devices used by offenders to steal your car.
* Store all vehicle keys out of view of windows and doors - thieves will often break into your home to locate keys to steal your vehicle.

Lets not make it easy for them!
