Burglary in Alverstoke

Alert message sent 18/01/2019 10:52:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Burglary in Alverstoke - Can you help?
We've been in the Palmerston Way area of Gosport a bit more than usual recently, following reports of a burglary that occurred between the early hours of the 15th January - late on the 16th January. If you have any info, please contact 101 quoting 44190019473 or flag one of us down and let us know.

We would like to also remind residents to ensure that their home is secure at all times.

Here are some thing you may want to consider: 
  • Lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house, even when you're just out in the garden, remembering to double-lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn key)
  • Hide all keys, including car keys, out of sight and away from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through the letterbox)
  • Install a visual burglar alarm (as part of a suite of prevention measures - a burglar alarm on its own will not prevent entry to your home)
  • Install good outside lighting
  • Get a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property
  • Leave radios or lights in your house on a timer to make the property appear occupied
  • Make sure the fences around your garden are in good condition
  • Secure bikes at home by locking them to an immoveable object inside a locked shed or garage
  • Keep ladders and tools stored away; don't leave them outside where they could be used to break into your home
  • Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property
  • Ensure rear fencing is in good repair
  • Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property i.e. trim high hedges
  • Mark your property with postcode and house number and register your property for free with with Immobilise
  • Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch Team
  • Remove valuables from view of ground floor windows
  • Store any high value items (i.e. jewellery, passports) in a properly secured safe or bank vault
Thank you,
