Crime Reduction Security Advice Over the Christmas Period

ISLANDERS are being asked to ensure both their homes, commercial premises and vehicles are secure, with no opportunities for thieves to steal valuables over the Christmas period

The Crime Reduction Officer of the States of Jersey Police, DC Jeremy House said:

"Christmas is a busy time and we are reminding people to be vigilant, and ensure that they lock doors and windows, and ensure that everything is secure. Please don't leave valuables on display. It is distressing to have property stolen, and then have to think about replacing it. In many cases break-ins are preventable, as long as you take security precautions. Make sure your property is secure. Don't give thieves a chance".

"Make sure that you have a secure place for any parcel deliveries. Don't make it easy for a thief to steal your delivered presents from your doorstep".

"Also, don't leave your shopping or presents visible in your vehicle. Lock your valuables in the boot if you have to leave the vehicle for any time. Check that car doors are always locked when you park, even if you park in a secure place. Don't make it easy for a thief".

˜If your property is broken into, please contact us as soon as you can, so we can investigate it swiftly".

Anyone who has seen people acting suspiciously in their area or has been offered items for sale can contact Police on 612612 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
