Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

Thefts from sheds and outbuildings

In light of recent activity and as we approach the summer months, the temptation for many of us to purchase new garden machinery is great, unfortunately for the opportunist burglar, this can be greater and can have expensive consequences.

Every time you cut your grass you are advertising what you have in your shed!

Please take some basic steps to ensure you protect your belongings.

Fit a quality padlock, a Solar Powered Security light (No wiring required)

Any larger expensive items can be chained together inside the shed.

These simple steps can be enough to deter a criminal and protect your possessions and cost very little to purchase, far less than a new Lawn Mower, and the stress of having to report a crime. If you require more information then please follow us on Twitter at
