Burglary Alert Fetcham. The Mount Friday 16th Apr 17:45 suspects have parked outside address and ran down side of house. One suspect has entered rear door and gone to enter garage before being challenged by the occupier and making off. Under Investigation.
One of the first places that some burglars may look is in sheds, garages or outbuildings. Usually they are not as securely built as the home and are often located where visibility is poor which can make them an easier target. They often contain a ready source of tools for breaking into the main section of the house. Make them just as secure as the house, so that any burglar is forced to take more time and make more noise.

Sash Jammers are a cheap way to improve your uPVC door or window security

Easy to fit

Fits most types of doors and windows

Will fit inward and outward opening doors and windows

Can prevent door or window from opening for any attempted break-in

Can wear out over time

Not all can be locked from the outside, so can only be operated when the home is occupied

Burglary Alert Leatherhead. Headley Road Sunday 18th April 21:10 Neighbour has reported intruders on, upon arrival police have located two persons within a property. Two men arrested. Under Investigation.
Opportunity plays a big role in enabling people to commit crime, and never more so than burglaries. Most domestic burglaries are committed by ‘opportunists’. Criminals will look for homes that:

Seem unoccupied

Have little or no obvious security

Have doors or windows left open, or

Where they think they won’t be seen.
While this information pack will give you lots of tips about physical tools you can use to protect your property, it’s also worth bearing in mind that being part of a Neighbourhood Watch scheme also brings benefits in terms of reducing crime.
