    Now that it is summer there is a tendency to undertake outdoor activities including gardening, painting and general tidying of outside areas. Also you are more likely to leave windows and doors unlocked or open to provide ventilation.

    Insecure properties may have repercussions on your insurance should you fall victim

    Merseyside Police is committed to creating a safer neighbourhood and your Local Policing Team is working hard to reduce crime in your area, but we know that some of our residents are concerned about burglary. Officers have been out and about, checking door handles on buildings.

    It is imperative during this time of year that you ensure that the relevant security measures are in place such as, even if you are at home or in your garden.

    • Locking patio doors after use.
    • Check outside lighting is functioning correctly.
    • Locking shed doors after use.
    • Lock front and back doors with a key.
    • Closing windows that can be accessed easily.
    • In addition, putting away tools and devices used such as lawn mowers, garden equipment and DIY materials, thereby avoiding any unnecessary risks of theft or burglary as some garden tools are used by thieves to gain entry.
    • Report any suspicious sightings or behaviour in your area.

    There is also a need to secure any cycling and associated equipment to avoid any loss and it is recommended that you have any equipment security marked or registered with your own personal details. Additional locks can be obtained for security and as an aid to prevent crime being committed. A number of security options are available from your local bike store.

    Burglars are opportunists, so please don't make it easy for them. Your local Policing Team encourages 'Home Watch' groups in all neighbourhoods so please spread the word amongst other residents, family and friends and together we can make the area safer for one and all. If you would like to find out more on how to set up a Home Watch, please contact your local policing team.

    If you have information about a crime or have general local concerns that you would like to raise, please do not hesitate to contact your Local Policing Team on 101.

    Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. They are a national charity independent to the police. You won't be asked your name, just what you know.

    Please be assured that your Local Policing Team is doing everything possible to reduce crime further.
