Don’t let your car or home become a crime scene this Christmas. That's the warning from the Winchester Community Safety Partnership.
Residents are being reminded that criminals are also on the look out for presents during the seasonal period.
They're offering some advice on protecting your valuables.
• Make sure doors and windows are secure when you leave your home, even if only for a short time.
• Don’t be tempted to return Christmas shopping bags to your car halfway through the day as you don’t know who is watching.
• Leaving the boxes from your Christmas presents next to your bins tells criminals what lovely new valuables you have in your home. Take large boxes to refuse sites or break them down and put them inside your bin.
– Sergeant Richard Holland from Winchester Police Station
Having your home or car entered by a thief is never a pleasant experience but it can be much worse around Christmas time when you have spent time and money choosing presents for your loved ones only for someone else to come along and steal them. We hope that residents and visitors to Winchester this Christmas will take time to think about our messages and hopefully prevent their home or car becoming a crime scene this year.”
