Crime Prevention Advice for Garden Sheds

 

  • Make sure there are no tools left in the garden that could be used to attack the shed.
  • Lock all windows.
  • Cover up the window so people can’t see what is in the shed.
  • Fit coach bolts or non-return screws (use to replace all screws on the hinges and locks).
  • Use a hasp and staple to secure shed.
  • Fit a padlock (certified to BS EN 12320 minimum Grade 3)
  • Please ensure that your property is positively identified – by the use of, say, an UltraViolet (U/V) Pen.

If you need Crime Prevention advice, contact our local Police Officer – refer to details above.

Temporarily 'on hold' - see adjacent notes.

I find myself writing this column for your local Neighbourhood Watch magazine just as the clocks have gone back and the dark nights have well and truly arrived. It is the first time that you will have heard from me as I have only recently arrived in Derbyshire Constabulary brand new from training. The budding detectives among you will notice that I look a little older than you would imagine for someone so fresh from training school, I will let you into a little secret being a PCSO is my second policing career having recently retired after 34 years as a police officer.

 

Neighbourhood Watch Notes for Nov - Dec 2020

I had no sooner arrived at Belper when they said you need to write an article for the Holbrook Neighbourhood Watch. As it’s my first time writing for Holbrook NW I was unsure what to put however having given it some though here it is.

 

First the good news, the village of Holbrook is a very safe place to live, in the last six months there has been no significant incidents, second there has been very little reported crime within the village the most serious offence involves a case of line fraud, which leads me nicely on to the bad news. Cases of online fraud is something which we can all be vulnerable to irrespective of where we are living be it town or country. With the pandemic in full flow once again many of us are turning to online shopping as we live under increasing restrictions. It seems a good time to give a timely reminder regarding online security.

 

If you get an Email you are not expecting even if it appears to come from a reputable source such as the local council, do not reply and never open any attachments. (this is how virus are downloaded onto your computer). The advice is to look up the Email address on their website and contact them either by telephone or using the Email address listed. They will be more than happy to confirm if the Email is from themselves.

 

Remember no Bank or Local Authority will ever ask you for your bank details either on the telephone or by Email. If you receive such a call no matter how plausible they sound terminate it immediately, again use the internet to obtain the contact details of their fraud department.

 

If you are contacted on line with what looks like a good offer or you have won a prize in a competition you have not entered, then discard it immediately. The old adage if something sounds too good to be true then it is, is certainly something to live your online life by.

 

It seems strange writing this as we approach November but may I take this opportunity to wish you all a safe run up to Christmas.
