On The Beat: January 2018

As I write this two men are due to appear in court over two burglaries in Longwell Green. In each case the householder only realised when a neighbour called to say their handbag had been found in the street.

Ensure your doors are locked

 

As I write this two men are due to appear in court over two burglaries in Longwell Green. In each case the householder only realised when a neighbour called to say their handbag had been found in the street.

Please make sure you lock up and set your alarm at night. Some doors may seem locked when you lift the handle, but can still be opened by a burglar if you haven’t turned the key. It’s important to take the keys out of the lock and put them safely out of sight. There’s more home security advice on www.avonandsomerset.police.uk

I’ve recently visited local schools to talk to children as part of anti-bullying week. At Hanham Woods Academy we also discussed online and social media safety.

When talking to primary school children I also reminded them that police officers and PCSOs are here to keep people safe, and talked about road safety and what to do if they were approached by a stranger.

The Be Proud Awards are organised jointly by Avon and Somerset Police and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, to acknowledge the dedicated officers, staff and volunteers who work to keep the communities of Avon and Somerset safe.
