@WAR - South Warwickshire Crime & Burglary Advice

South Warwickshire Crime & Burglary Advice

Burglary, South Warwickshire
  • Incident number: N/A
  • Date: 30/09/2019
  • Sender: 7737 FP
  • Business area name: South Warwickshire
Since April 2019, up until the end of July 2019, Warwickshire burglaries reduced by just under 16%, partly because some of those involved in the crimes have been detected by the police with offenders being prosecuted, sentenced and imprisoned.
Warwickshire Police are currently employing more police officers that are now starting to come through onto the streets. While this is most welcome and will help, individuals and the community cannot be complacent. Communities will always have an important part to play too.
Burglaries, though fewer, are still taking place and some are 'Car Key Burglaries' where offenders break into a home to get the keys to a motor vehicle and steal it. We wanted to share with everyone some general advice about the steps you can take to help protect your home and property and keep safe.
How you can protect your home and property
So what are the things that you can do to help prevent burglars deciding that you and your home are their next target? Here's our advice:
If you need to replace Euro cylinder locks: Google Avocet ABS TS007 Snap Secure Euro Cylinder for a well-reviewed lock under £40

@NAT - Thomas Cook "refund" scams on the rise


We are aware of reports on social media that criminals are using the Thomas Cook liquidation as an opportunity to lure victims into financial scams.

Members of the public have reported receiving calls and messages offering “refunds” by people purporting to be associated with, or acting on behalf of Thomas Cook.
We would urge people to be vigilant of unsolicited calls, texts or social media messages that ask for personal or financial details, and not to automatically click on the links in unexpected emails.
Legitimate organisations will never contact you out of the blue and ask for your PIN, card details, or full banking passwords. If you get a call or message asking for these, it’s a scam.
Remember, your bank or the police will never ask you to transfer money out of your account, or ask you to hand over cash for safe-keeping.
