Ref log 430 of 24/4
On 24/4 offenders entered a secure farm outbuilding in Knowle/Chadwick End and stole a red Honda quad bike, a green Kawasaki scrambler bike, power tools including Stihl saws, chainsaws and a generator. Offenders used wheelbarrows to escape via surrounding fields.
Also recently another farm in Knowle/Chadwick End had offenders on site where an outbuilding was targeted. The door was forced but nothing stolen. No one was seen.
How secure is your farm? Take the time to walk round your property and ensure you put measures in place to make it as difficult as possible for any intruders on site. Most security measures to consider are the same as any property home ie: alarms, security lighting, sensors.
Securing farm premises often require more innovative measures including using natural barriers and ditches along the perimeter, old plant / vehicles parked against barn/ outbuilding doors and access points, Wi-Fi sensors to trigger phones, property marking. Noisy animals! Including geese.
