Burglary Alert

Alert message sent 21/09/2017 21:13:00

Information sent on behalf of Notts Police

Burglary incidents in your area
 
Burglary incidents in Kimberley, please ensure your home is secure.
Also residents of Watnall Nuthall and Strelley please check that your properties are safe and secure. Good news below but please keep  your security checks up to date.
 

Over a six day period Kimberley experienced four dwelling house burglaries. With help of local residents and local knowledge from the police team at Kimberley/Eastwood two arrests were made. During the arrest and search of properties linked with the suspects items were recovered and seized which had been stolen during the burglaries. This is an excellent result that shows any information can help in the arrest of offenders that break into homes. I would encourage anyone who has knowledge of any crime to phone the police and give the information in. This information could be the last piece in the jigsaw that we need to make an arrest and conviction at court.


In light if these incidents we would like to offer the following crime prevention advice

  • Ensure you lock your doors and windows even when you are in.
  • Fit good quality locks to your exterior doors.
  • If you have an intruder alarm make sure you set it when you go out and when you go to bed.
  • Leave a light on when it’s dark, make use of timer switches and consider leaving a radio on or investing in a fake TV device.
  • Register your property for free on the national property database www.immobilise.com Immobilise helps Police to reunite stolen items with their rightful owners in the event of them being recovered.
  • Protectively mark your valuable property with your name and postcode preferably using a visible property marking kit such as Cremark or SelectaMARK and don’t leave valuables such as laptops on view.
  • Take your keys to bed with you; don’t leave them in door locks or window locks, or in view of windows and doors.
  • Confirm the identity of anyone who calls at your home who you don’t know. Beware of bogus officials. Not sure? Don’t open the door.
