We have received reports of metal thefts in the area.

Metal theft is an issue blighting the whole of the UK due to the money that can be made from selling metal items on.

There are things you can do to protect metal in your homes, vehicles and businesses from theft.

You can protect your home by:

  • Keeping gates locked and installing strong fences

  • Being aware of any objects that could be used to access your roof like water butts, wheelie bins and garden furniture - if possible these should be stored away from the building.

  • Putting outside lighting on a dusk till dawn circuit.

  • Being a good neighbour and encouraging others in your neighbourhood to be vigilant.

You can protect businesses and public buildings by:

  • Regularly reviewing the perimeter fencing and gates security - checking for holes and weak spots which could allow people access

  • Not leaving any scrap materials lying around which could tempt thieves.

  • Using a forensic solution to mark any metal - warning signs saying forensic marking has been used should be displayed.

  • Installing CCTV with adequate monitoring and recording. Visible warning signs should be displayed as a deterrent to potential offenders.
