Warning from Forest Hill Police:
[quote]Since the beginning of July, there have been a total of seven burglary related offences within the Ward of Forest Hill. This message is intended to remind you that now the days and nights are getting warmer please do not become complacent and leave windows open or doors ajar whilst popping out or when in the garden. It takes moments for an offender to enter your home under such circumstances and steal your property.
These offences have occurred around the following areas; London Road, Kirkdale, Boveney Road and Manor Mount.
Remember, do not leave your items in plain view from windows, do not leave car keys near letter boxes or on your dining tables near open windows. If you have double glazing, most have the facility to leave the window slightly ajar but still locked. Use this facility if you must only on rooms upstairs whilst asleep at night to keep cooler air circulating in your home.
If you wish to receive a burglary advice pack or have a free home security survey, let me know and I’ll contact you for this to be done. You can also get good sound advice on all manner of security by visiting the Metropolitan Police Service’s own website at www.met.police.uk as well as police approved products on such sites as Secured by Design by visiting www.securedbydesign.com.
Yours sincerely, Michael 195PL
