3rd June 2015
Over the past couple of weeks there has been an increase in burglaries across Somerset. Incidents have occurred during both daytime and during darkness hours. Access has been gained in many instances through insecure windows/doors.
With the promise of better weather, please ask all members to ensure that properties are kept secure whenever possible. Whether properties are being left for short periods or whilst on holiday, or even if you are going into the garden - always make sure that accessible windows and doors are kept closed and locked.
Another area of concern often related to this time of year is that of theft from motor vehicles. Many of these incidents can be prevented by ensuring that vehicles are always kept secure, windows are closed and items of value removed (or at least put out of sight).
Please pass this reminder on to your members to help prevent further victims.
