Information can also be passed anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or reporting online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
Security in the home 
Keep all windows locked – two out of three burglars get into a house through a window.
Fit visible burglar alarms.
If you have a back door or side door, fit a deadlock as many burglars enter through side or back doors to avoid the risk of being seen.
Be alert to people loitering in a residential street. If it is no one you recognise, call the police.
Do not leave car, door or window keys on view. Never leave keys within reach of a letterbox or a window.
Move valuable items away from windows and put them out of sight.
Never leave spare keys in an obvious place, such as under a flower pot or a doormat. Leave them with a trusted neighbour or relative instead.
Register valuable property at immobilise.com or keep an inventory including description, serial number and photograph of each item.
Do not keep large amounts of cash at home. If you have to do so, use a home safe that is stored out of sight.
Use low wattage lighting outside your home that comes on automatically at dusk and goes off at dawn.
