Warning to Homeowners...
Peter Timmins is the police community support officer assigned to Mitcheldean.
Practical steps you can take to stop shed burglary include:
Making the access to the rear of your property as difficult as possible.Using
locks, bolts or a padlock and chain on all side and rear gates.
Planting prickly or thorny plants around the fence line to deter intruders.
Fit and use security lighting – but ensure it will not annoy the neighbours!
Make sure sheds are kept securely locked.
Make windows opaque so property is not on
Mark all valuables with your postcode and house number.
Secure valuable items to each other or to the fabric of the shed. This will make removal much more difficult.
Consider fitting an alarm.
