A new campaign has been launched by Gwent Police to tackle the number of burglaries that are blighting the lives of families.
There were more than 900 break-ins in the force's area in just six months last year. And the annual total for the whole of Wales is more than 7,000.
So what can we do to protect ourselves? James Crichton-Smith has been talking to one woman who's been the victim of a burglary.
Gwent Police has confirmed that an object discovered this morning during a search of a property in Ridgeway Drive, Newport, is not an explosive device. Bomb disposal experts were called to the road at around 2pm this afternoon.
Bomb squad officers are currently dealing with a suspected explosive device at an address in Newport.
Police were called to Ridgeway Drive at around 11.45am. Gwent Police say "an object that looked like an explosive device" was discovered during a search of the property.
A cordon was put in place as a precaution and members of the Explosive Ordnance Division arrived at around 2pm and are still on the scene.
A 34-year-old man from Newport has been arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm and production of cannabis.
Gwent Police have confirmed that the body discovered at the Newport Wetlands site yesterday is that of missing Newport teenager Nida Naseer.
Gwent Police say they believe a body discovered on Thursday morning near the sea wall at the Wetlands site at West Nash Road is that of missing Newport teenager Nida Naseer.
The death is still being treated as unexplained, pending the outcome of a post-mortem which is taking place today say the force and Nida’s family continue to be supported by specialist officers.
Every 30 seconds police take a call about domestic violence - but today two of Wales' police forces have been criticised by the official inspectorate for the way they handle domestic abuse.
HMIC says Gwent Police is failing to minimise the risk to victims because the force doesn't have the right systems in place.
The report also says the service provided by North Wales police is inconsistent.
Rachel Williams from Newport was shot in the leg by her abusive partner. She says she's tired of hearing things will change - as Carole Green has been finding out.
The father of missing teenager Nida Naseer says the family are still sick with worry over her disappearance.
The 19-year-old was last seen in December and went missing after leaving her family home in Newport.
Today they appealed again for her to get in touch. Hannah Thomas reports.
Josie Pearson, a London 2012 Paralympic champion from Hay-on-Wye, is fronting this year's campaign from all four Welsh police forces to highlight the importance of wearing a seatbelt.
She was paralysed in a crash in 2003, when she was not wearing a seatbelt.
She describes how she regrets the day she chose not to put her seatbelt on: "I wish I could go back to that day and not get in the car. Set a good example and put your belt on, it could save your life.”
Paralympic gold medallist Josie Pearson MBE has teamed up with Gwent Police to launch this year's All Wales Seatbelt Campaign.
Josie sustained life changing injuries which left her paralysed as a result of a road traffic collision that occurred in Goytre, near Abergavenny in 2003. She was not wearing a seatbelt.
The seatbelt campaign will run over the next two weeks and aims to enforce the law of wearing a seatbelt in the front and rear of a vehicle, and prevent people putting their lives at risk in the first place by choosing not to belt up.
