Local Burglaries & Vehicle Theft

Local Burglaries

Increasingly these days we are worried by the threats posed by different forms of Cybercrime. However, there are still instances of burglaries of dwellings and non-dwellings (sheds, garages etc).

Remember that your tools may be used to facilitate entry to your house. Keep them under lock and key and out of sight and  fit an additional lock if possible. Normal locks do not present much of a deterrent to would-be burglars.

Following a number of non-dwelling burglaries in the Eastleigh area, the Police have reminded householders to lock all doors including:

  • Car doors
  • Sheds
  • Up-and-over garage doors
