Burglary rise in Gedling area prompts crime prevention advice from police


Police are appealing to residents and homeowners in the Gedling area to be extra vigilant following more burglaries in the area over recent weeks.

Officers say there has been a rise in reports over the past 30 days and have offered advice to residents to ensure there houses and vehicles are more secure.

A spokesman for Gedling South Beat Team said: “In light of these incidents we would like to offer crime prevention advice to residents.”

The police crime prevention advice is as follows:

  • Ensure you lock your doors and windows, even when you are in
  • Fit good quality locks to your exterior doors
  • If you have an intruder alarm, make sure you set it when you go out and when you go to bed.
  • Leave a light on when it’s dark, make use of timer switches and consider leaving a radio on or investing in a fake TV device
  • Register your property for free on the national property database
    Immobilise helps police to reunite stolen items with their rightful owners in the event of them being recovered.
  • Protectively mark your valuable property with your name and postcode preferably using a visible property marking kit such as Cremark or SelectaMARK and don’t leave valuables like laptops on view.
