Billingham Community Awareness Notice

Alert message sent 06/04/2018 14:47:00

Information sent on behalf of Cleveland Police

Dear Residents of Billingham,

Are your valuables visible through your windows and patio doors whilst you're out ?????
Please note that we've had a couple of reports of attempted break in's where valuables have been a potential temptation to opportunist thieves who've spotted them whilst walking by.......  Please see below crime prevention advice and tips to prevent you from becoming a victim:-
·  Doors – fit 5-lever mortice locks to front and back doors.
·  Consider security bolts to the door/frame and also for internal ground floor doors.
·  Patio doors – fit additional locks/door bar and check for space at the top of the door as burglars can lift these out of the frame.
·  Windows – fit British kite marked snap locks – key operated – two per window.
·  Fit a house alarm (use a reputable company registered with NACOSS or NSI) using sensors on doors and windows in addition to PIR sensors.
·  Consider fitting a safe to an upstairs room (bolted to the floor and external wall) for valuables, passports and items of sentimental value.
·  Do not leave valuables on show, eg mobiles, laptops, tablets etc.
·  Mark your property – use your postcode and house number!  Cleveland Police use a Dotpeen property marking machine.

If you see anything suspicious you can report it via our 101 telephone line or in an emergency 999.

Stay Safe......
