East Bridgford has experienced two Burglaries to residential properties; on both occasions the property was unoccupied.
The Police ask "Please stress to your community the importance of making a house look lived in, even when people are away from the address". This can be done cheaply and easily with timer switches or leave your lights on. Evan as the daylight hours are extending through spring. Install a burglar alarm and always fit and use good quality locks on points of access, remembering to keep the keys in a safe place away from the windows and doors.
REMEMBER – if you can get into your home without your keys so can a burglar NEVER leave keys in locks on the inside, we have also received a number of reports recently where offenders have reached through windows or pet flaps and been able to gain entry into properties. Burglary and theft can take only seconds – don't give them the opportunity!

SCAM ALERT – Guard your personal details
Don–t give out personal or bank details on an outbound call or via text and don't click on any links sent to you, even if this has been sent from your bank. Action fraud receives numerous incidents on a daily basis of bank accounts being emptied from these fraud tactics.

#Tell2 others what you've learnt. Always call back on a number you know to be genuine and from another phone device, this ensures the fraudster is off the line. Your bank, a reputable company or the police will never:

  • Try keeping you on the line for hours on end or have their security team ring you

  • Phone and ask you for your PIN or full banking password, even by tapping them into your phone keypad

  • Ask you to withdraw money to hand over to them for safe-keeping or as part of a police operation

  • Ask you to transfer money to a safe account for fraud reasons, even if they say it is in your name

  • Send someone to your home to collect cash, PIN, cards or cheque books if you are a victim of fraud

  • Ask you to purchase goods or vouchers using your card and then hand them over for safe-keeping
  • Please report any suspicious or anti–social behaviour to the Police; if they do not know about an incident, they will NOT apportion the resources to prevent it happening again.

    Remember, if you see a crime being committed dial 999.
    1. For all other incidents (including the reporting of suspicious persons/vehicles) dial 101.
    2. Remember you can report someone's criminal behaviour FREE AND ANONYMOUSLY to CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111
    3. You can get more information from the website at www.nottinghamshire.police.uk/
