Police Advise Residents To Be Alert
by Parish Council on Thursday 5 June 2014

Police are reminding residents to be security conscious after several burglaries involving unlocked windows and doors occurred across the division.

Community Safety Inspector Russ Dakin, who covers Chesterfield, Bolsover, North East Derbyshire and the Amber Valley, said: “We would like to remind people just to remember to keep their doors and windows closed and locked if they are outside, upstairs and especially overnight. Reduce the opportunities for a thief to get into your home.”

Security advice and tips include:

* Making sure doors and windows are locked.

* Keeping windows closed at night time, even when you are in bed     and invest in window locks for ground floor windows.  

* Keeping any side or rear garden gates locked at all times.  Installing an alarm and security lights around your home to help deter burglars.

* Not leaving car keys or ID documents near doors, letterbox or windows.

* Security marking any valuables and registering them. You should also record any serial numbers. 

* Tiding away any garden tools after using them and always keeping sheds and outbuildings locked.
