Alert message sent 20/03/2019 10:05:00

Information sent on behalf of South Yorkshire Police


Just wanted to inform you that in the early hours of the morning on 16/03/2019, two reports have been made where a property on Hunter Road S6 and Taplin Road S6 have been the subject of attempted burglary.
No entry has been gained to either property. Method of attempted entries consisted of trying to snap a door lock which was unsuccessful and also by kicking the back door in, which again was unsuccessful.

Please be aware of suspicious activity to help detect and reduce crime within you area.

•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
•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 Immobilise
•Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch scheme
•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

Please call 101 for non emergency situations.
If there is an intimidate threat to yourself or others then please call 999.

Thanks for reading
