Police release short film aimed at keeping sheds secure

Posted on 6th July 2017

We have released a short film with some tips to help keep your shed and gardening equipment secure. 

As we go through the summer months, and people are out enjoying working in their gardens and allotments, we often see a rise in break-ins to sheds and out-buildings as thieves target gardening and DIY equipment to steal and sell on. 

Kate Bowyer, our crime prevention officer, appears in the film with a top ten of helpful hints to try and help us, stop you, becoming a victim. 

For more information on the issues covered in the film visit, call your local Safer Neighbourhood Team  on 101 or send them a message online by visiting the Contact Us section of our website here.
