Crime Prevention Advice Solihull

  • Think about using light timers if returning home after dark. Most burglaries committed locally are during daytime/early evening hours.
  • Please make sure that your presents are not on show for opportunist thieves to see.
  • Check that your doors are locked even when you are home.
  • Do what you can to make sure your house doesn’t look empty. Why not ask a trusted neighbour to park on your empty drive as well as leaving a light/radio on.
  • Ask a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your home if you are going away for a few days. Removing any post on view, putting wheelie bins in and out for you and drawing curtains in the evening.
  • Be careful what you share on social media. Update your friends and family about what you have been up to once you are home.
  • Talk to any elderly or vulnerable neighbours and family members about door step crime.
  • See something suspicious report it to the Police on 101. We have had some great arrests in recent weeks. Calls in from the public have resulted in arrests being made for robbery, burglary and vehicle crime.
  • When you are out take extra care with your personal belongings. Crowded places attract thieves. Keep your mobile devices out of sight and purses and wallets safe.
