Safer Lambeth Anti Burglary Advice

Leave a comment

Can I (Karen Hunn – Met Police) please ask to again make sure everyone in your area takes note of the burglary advice and I have included this time the picture of a tool that has been used in letter box burglaries.

Also the evenings are drawing in and so for personal safety please stay in well lit areas, keep mobile phones and ipods etc out of view particularly around the transport hubs.

There has been an increase on Lambeth of this type of burglary. The perpetrator puts their hand/tools through the letter box and opens the door from the inside. This is an easy quiet access to premises.

Vehicles are being stolen from these venues as car keys are clearly visible.

When in your property at night double lock the door so a key is required to open the door and not just by using the handle inside.

Keep keys in a place all members of the family are aware of to open the doors in case of an emergency but out of sight of a burglar.

If you see anything suspicious please let us know;

In an emergency phone 999.

In a non emergency phone 0300 123 1212

Or your local Safer Neighbourhood Police Team

Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 allows you to report something anonymously
