Police show presence to prevent burglars

Thursday, 02 February 2012

Police in Tidworth have been visiting local residents and offering them advice on how to remain safe from burglars this year, after a spate of burglaries in the area throughout January.

The force has also been seeking to show burglars that it has a presence by visiting and supporting people in areas which have recently been targeted.

Tidworth Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) also patrolled the area through the night on January 25th, in both marked and unmarked vehicles, in a bid to drive down crimes and subsequent home insurance claims.

It said that a number of people were stopped and spoken to throughout the night, according to the Salisbury Journal.

They also visited properties to tell people to make sure they are always securing their property and not welcoming burglars to have a go.

Police in Portsmouth reported last week that while crime rates in general are now showing a drop, the number of homes being burgled is still increasing.
