The majority of crime is still opportunistic, as people are careless about leaving items visible from the road, garage doors open and out-buildings unprotected.
There have however been incidents of forced break-ins through front doors.
Please increase your awareness to what is going on around you, not only at home, but also when you are out and about. Handbag / wallet theft in the CDB area has also increased, with remote jamming still an on-going problem.
Garden sheds, unprotected out-buildings, copper pipes as well as electronic items are the main targets.
Many clients call in the next day to report crimes, as they have gone unnoticed due to the lack of external or alarm protection measures.
