Burglaries - Crime Prevention Advice

There have been a number of burglaries in the area over the last month, particular in Chalfont St Peter, Chalfont St Giles and Little Chalfont.  The Neighbourhood team is working with residents to target harden their properties. In line with this please find below crime prevention advice to help reduce the chances of your property being targetted.

During the winter months there will normally be an increase in the amount of burglaries.  This is mainly due to the burglar using the cover of darkness and being able to identify and target empty properties.  Here are some tips on how to make your property less appealing to criminals. 
  • Keep house and car keys out of reach and sight of doors and windows and do not leave valuables on display.
  • Donít leave packaging next to your bin.
  • If you are going away ask someone you trust to keep an eye on your house.
  • Do not advertise on social media sites that you are away.
  • Use a timer switch, and ensure lights come on when it is getting dark.
  • Consider a video doorbell.
  • Are you a member of a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme?if not please let us know and we can inform Chiltern District Council.  These schemes are very productive in reducing crime and we are keen to promote the use of them.
  • Please ensure all doors and windows are locked when leaving your property, windows left slightly open are an attraction to burglars. The same advice applies if you are in your garden.
  • Lock away ladders, garden tools and other items that burglars could use to gain access to your home.
Please report any suspicious activity immediately to Police, registration numbers of any vehicles and descriptions of persons acting suspiciously. 
 
We had a couple of distraction burglaries where the criminals have posed as workmen (water board, electricity board etc.) and have talked their ways into properties, usually elderly residents.  If you have not booked an appointment for a service and have any concerns that the person at the door may not be legitimate, ask them for their identity card and call your usual company to confirm their identity.  Legitimate workmen will understand your precautions and will be patient; the criminal may walk away. 
 
If you would like a member of the neighbourhood team to visit your property and discuss your security please email the appropriate neighbourhood.

We have identified a new modus operandi where offenders are targeting metal type storage/shipping containers and breaking into them and stealing goods.  
 
An incident on Burtons Lane, Chalfont St Giles in the early hours of the 7th January resulted in such containers being opened by the sites digger.  Please can owners of such containers look at their current security measures and consider increasing locks on them and ensuring that expensive items stored inside are crime marked or identifiable.
 
Please contact your local TVP neighbourhood team for further crime advice.

Following recent burglaries in the area, we are reminding residents to check their home security. You can reduce the risk of becoming a victim of burglary by taking a few simple steps:

  • When going out, remember to light up your home using timer switches or a TV simulator.
  • Donít leave valuables or cash on display and store your house and car keys away from your letterbox.
  • Move bins away from any side gates to prevent easy access into your property.
  • Lock any tools away to prevent them being used to break into your home.
  • Consider fitting a motion activated external light or installing a CCTV system.
  • Finally, mark your valuables using a UV pen and register them on the national property register at www.immobilise.com.

If you see a burglary in progress, or a burglary has occurred very recently, you should always report it by calling 999.
