Local Burglaries

Message from the Police Crime Reduction Officer:

Residents of Littleport & Isleham suffered a burglary on 3 February.

The offenders on both of these crimes gained access through the rear of the property. Your boundary is your first line of defence, therefore, needs to be secure.
• Ensure front boundaries to your property are no higher than 1m, this allows good passing surveillance
• To the sides and rear of your property, 1.8m fencing or similar, this can also be topped with trellis • Lockable 1.8m gate
• Remove climbing aids that assist an offender to climb into your garden, wheelie bins are often used

For further security advice please contact Sue Loaker Crime Reduction Officer for East Cambs Tel: 01353 656641, window and shed alarms are also available at a low non-profit price
