Here is the latest update from PCSO Zack Earl
There has been increased activity with door sellers in the Kennington and Radley area, they usually try to sell cloths and cleaning equipment at extortionate prices, please do not buy any of their goods as they will keep returning to the villages. If you believe that you are a victim of a rogue trader, or are concerned that a neighbour or family member may be, please report it to Trading Standards via 03454 04 05 06. If you feel threatened in anyway, call 101 or 999 in an emergency.
Make it difficult for the burglar
Home security is the best way to reduce your chances of being burgled. A lot of burglaries are spur of the moment, carried out by opportunist thieves who don’t even need to use force – they get in through an open door, window or other easy point of entry and take their chances. The good news is that is doesn’t take much to improve security and put off burglars. Spending money on security measures can seem daunting but it’s a good investment, it will last a long time and can add value to your home.
Look at your home through the eyes of a burglar
If you think your home security looks poor, chances are so will a burglar!
• Are there place where they could break in without being seen?
• If you have forgotten your keys but can still get in, so can a burglar!
Have a look around your property and think about how you would break in if you lock yourself out, you will maybe surprise yourself how easy it could be.
