Please check your boundary hedges and fences including Railways every day.
We have seen a recent decrease in burglaries across both East and West Sussex, whilst this is a positive sign; with more people being at home during the current Corona pandemic, now is a great time to review your home security:
Not driving at the moment? Put your car keys in a safe place out of view making sure your vehicle is locked and secure
Getting fresh air in the garden? Check - do all your windows and doors lock securely? Check them from the outside, could you get in?
Seen someone on your neighbour’s property that you do not recognise? Report your suspicions to the Police
If you have any evidence, no matter how small, on any of the crimes listed below, please call it in on the non-emergency number 101 and quote the reference number and date as given to the left of the report, of for that matter any other crime.
