At this time of year we tend to receive reports of thefts of heating oil or fuel.

We’ve out together some top tips on how you can prevent your oil or fuel from being taken.

Taking these measures will help make life more difficult for would-be-thieves and also ensures your tank stays topped-up.

  • Be aware of your oil levels and check frequently
  • Where possible keep your levels low
  • Speak to your supplier about having a more frequent but smaller delivery
  • If you have a plastic tank, consider erecting fencing around the tank with one end hinged and locked for filling purposes. The fencing should be fixed to solid posts and should be set off the tank approximately 12 inches on all sides. The same should be fixed to the top as well
  • If you have a steel tank, then fit a quality anti-cut close-shackled padlock
  • Make sure your outside lights work and are set to detect movement.

If you see anyone going out with drums and pipes to steal fuel call us on 101 or give Crimestoppers a call anonymously on 0800 555 111.

As the weather gets warmer and people start to work in their garden sheds, we usually see an increase in the number of reported thefts from gardens and sheds.

Theft of bikes, mowers, tools and garden equipment from sheds is one of the most common crimes in the Dyfed Powys Police area.

Help us prevent that by following some simple steps to become more property security conscious.  

To improve security and to reduce the chance of become a victim of crime follow these crime prevention top tips:

 

  • Record all model and serial numbers of the equipment ie lawn mowers, bicycles, tools, etc on immobilise.com

  • Install security lighting in the garden

  • Ensure fences/gates are kept in good condition

  • Ensure good quality locks are fitted to the shed and are securely locked.

  • Fit locks to windows and use them

  • Property mark all the tools and equipment

  • To avoid thieves hiding behind hedges/shrubs – keep them cut back

  • Have prickly hedges around the perimeter to make accessibility to the garden difficult

  • Consider installing an alarm to the shed

  • Consider having gravel paths and drives – this discourages thieves from the garden as gravel makes a noise

  • Lock ladders to a post or wall – they could be used for easy access to the home.

Parents – support us in keeping anti-social behaviour to a minimum by making sure you know where your children are and what they’re doing.

Levels of anti-social behaviour (ASB) in Dyfed Powys are relatively low, but during school holidays we see a rise in reports of anti-social behaviour (ASB) by young people.

Most are well-behaved, but a minority engage in underage drinking, use bad language, can be noisy and intimidate residents by hanging around in large groups.

Young people who engage in ASB could receive a criminal record that could affect them for life.

We will be patrolling known hotspots throughout the holiday period to keep ASB to a minimum.

Your support in this matter would be most appreciated.

Report ASB to 101 or here.

Summary:

Caravan Security

Details:

Thieves are known to target caravans for spare parts or to sell on and will also target valuables left inside.

 

Caravans are more difficult to secure than your home or car but there are measures you can take to help deter thieves.

 

Here are some top safety tips for caravaners:

 

  • Leave curtains open so criminals can clearly see that there are no valuables to steal

 

  • Most new, modern mobile homes come equipped with the kind of window and door locks that you will find on residential properties, but these can only be effective if they are used

 

  • Install intruder alarms - these have proven to be an effective deterrent to scare off offenders

 

  • Choose your site with care and give some consideration to the security features it offers as well as its facilities.

 

  • If possible, look for sites that display the ‘Secure by Design’ logo, indicating that the site meets with stringent security standards and that measures such as CCTV and private security patrols have been implemented.

 

  • Consider the use of intelligent property marking systems such as Smartwater DNA which can link your holiday home to your main domestic residence. 

 

  • Immobilise your caravan even when you stop only briefly.

 

To report a theft from a caravan or any suspicious activity around a caravan call 101, or in an emergency 999.

 

Summary:

Distraction burglaries / cold callers

Details:

Bogus callers prey on the most vulnerable people in our communities attempting to con them out of vast amounts of money for unnecessary and overpriced work.

Sometimes they pretend to be from reputable companies and sometimes they resort to distraction tactics.

Cold callers will phone or knock your door unannounced and try to sell you a product or service. Many are genuine but some can be scams.

Make sure you follow police advice on how to deal with unnanounced callers to keep yourself and your property safe:

  • Consider fitting a chain on the door – and always use it. Remember to keep the door chain on until you are sure your caller is genuine.
  • Do not let anyone into your home that you do not know or until you are completely satisfied that they are who they say they are.
  • Make sure the caller is genuine. Ask to see identification. If in doubt, telephone the company the caller says they work for. Don’t use a number on their card but look it up in the phone book.
