I hope you have all enjoyed a lovely Christmas and you may even have been lucky enough to receive some lovely gifts! A few crime prevention tips:

Make a note of any serial numbers/ distinguishing marks on high value property. These items can be registered for free on www.immobilise.com. This is a database which the police will access if stolen property is recovered.

Jewellery – we recommend that you take a photo of any pieces of jewellery and keep them safe. This helps us to identify your property should it be stolen.

The police do offer a free property marking service where we can mark your property with your postcode, If you are interested in this, please contact me on the details below to discuss.

And finally…

When you put out your recycling for collection, please be mindful that discarded boxes give burglars an idea of what you had for Christmas. Try to crush them and put them in the bin or alternatively take to the recycling centre.

I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year and I look forward to working with you in 2013.

Best wishes
