This time of year can see an increase in thefts with criminals who use dark evenings to their advantage.
Chief Inspector Sen. McAldoni said: “There are three things that everyone can do to help prevent more people from being robbed.
“First, lock and check all windows and doors before leaving the house or going to bed. Get in the habit of doing this every day and make sure everyone is included in the house. As much as you make it a part of your daily routine. Opportunistic thieves are less likely to target you.
Second, if you see something on your street or in your neighborhood that doesn’t look right, let us know. Don’t wait Pick up the phone and let us know as soon as possible. We caught the thieves in the act because someone called us straight. We stopped the plane with the stolen goods because someone called us directly. The sooner we find out, the faster we can respond and your neighborhood will be safe.
“Finally, check your business with an old neighbor or family member. Unfortunately, thieves will target people who are more vulnerable in our community. So if you know someone who lives on their own, Please contact in any way possible.
“There is a lot of information about our home security on our website (www.psni.police.uk) and our crime prevention officer is available to provide further assistance through our non-emergency number 101. We work closely with our policing and community partnerships, and Neighbor Watch partners to ensure that advice and support is available to all of our residents.
Midwest Antrim PCSP Chair, Councilor Danny Donnelly added: “This is a very important message for all of us to hear at this time of year, so that we can protect ourselves and our neighbors from theft. ۔
“The Mid and East Interim PCSP will continue to work in partnership with PSNI to reduce all types of crime, and to improve the safety and security of every member of our community around our home. I would encourage you to take these simple steps.
“In support of this campaign, I urge all our residents and business owners to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity immediately, so that we can protect everyone in our community.”
