Autumn burglary campaign begins after clock change

30 Oct, 2018 12:12

 A focus on burglary begins this Autumn after the clocks changed this weekend.

From October 29 to November 4, Sussex Police is running Operation Magpie, the autumn burglary prevention and awareness campaign.

There were 644 burglaries across the force in September 2017, but this fell to 518 in September 2018. The autumn campaign aims to maintain this decrease, as well as raising awareness about how you can protect your own home.

During this week there will be prevention advice to specific communities as well as social media posts, in an effort to prevent burglaries from happening in the first place.

Detective Chief Inspector Alasdair Henry, Sussex Police burglary lead said: “Operation Magpie acts as a reminder for residents and business owners to keep their property safe and reduce the chance of being burgled.

“Despite Sussex being one of the least likely areas of the country to be a victim of burglary, we still need to work together to ensure our dwellings and work premises are secure from intruders. At this time of year I would encourage people to remind themselves of our crime prevention advice, advertised through our flyers and social media messaging out this week. Please also help us by recording details of your valuable property on the free to use “Immobilise” website.

“Tackling burglary is business as usual for our teams, and we will be focusing our resources across Sussex to undertake high visibility patrols and to provide crime prevention advice in selected areas. We’ll also aim to keep you up to date on our efforts to prosecute criminals linked to this type of crime via our local district social media accounts during the week.”

Of the 43 UK police forces, Sussex is rated as fifth highest in the national league table as one of the least likely places to live and be burgled.

You can also be kept up to date by joining Sussex Police’s Community Message service, In the Know which will keep you up to date on the latest news in your police district.

Communities can work together to prevent crime. By joining an existing Neighbourhood Watch scheme or becoming a NHW coordinator your community can be stronger together.

Beware HMRC telephone scam!

Please beware of the following scam

You receive an automatic message from HMRC stating that HMRC have been trying to contact you and that HMRC will be taking legal action against you. You are asked to press 1 to get through to an adviser.

This is NOT HMRC. HMRC does not phone.

Put the phone down and make sure that the line has been disconnected. If you wish to check, use another phone (mobile) to ring HMRC or ring someone else first to check phone line is disconnected, then ring HMRC.

Several residents in Iden have received these calls.
