Burglary Day Of Action

Dear resident,

We’re holding a day of action to tackle burglary as the evenings draw in and the clocks go back next month. Activity is taking place across the county today (see below) as part of Operation Aware, the force’s drive to catch offenders and reduce offences.

There are crime prevention events across the county and crime reduction officers will be joined by PCSOs, Specials and police cadets to improve security in ‘hot spot’ areas.
Arrests of people suspected of burglary have also been made across the force.
Last year there were 299 burglaries in the county in October, more than any other month.

Thanks for your time
