Information Update – 18th June 2007

Door step callers
Can I please pass on the advice regarding door to door salesman, the majority of doors step callers are legitimate however can caution be exercised.
Ask for identity cards and if in doubt do not let them in, if they cannot produce any identity and you are suspicious contact police and alert neighbours if possible.

Garden thefts
Recently we have had reports of thefts from gardens, furniture and planters amongst the favourites. Can people please take extra care where they position these items and if necessary consider fixing them to the floor or using locks and chains .

Motorcycle thefts
In the last month we have had a slight increase in the theft of motorcycles, at the moment we have been unable to identify a suspect. Can all bikers please be more vigilant and if possible use a locking device, as just having bikes locked away in a garage has not deterred our offender.
