Christmas Safety Advice

Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year and police are issuing some seasonal secutiry tips to ensure it remains a safe and happy one for all.

Hethersett and Mulbarton Neighbourhood Policing Team Sgt Graham White said: "While Norfolk currently enjoys the status of being the safest county in England, the Christmas and New Year period can offer thieves some additional opportunities.

"By taking a few simple measures, you can prevent and deter would-be thieves and keep your home and valuables safe."

Advice for householders:

Close curtains when dark to prevent thieves looking in

Use timer switches so it looks like you are at home

Remember to secure windows, doors and outbuildings

Record serial numbers, take photos of valuable items and mark them with a police approved marking system - it makes them worthless to thieves.

Always lock you car and never leave property or shopping on show - even in car parks

Shred personal items to prevent possible identity theft.

Keep wallets, bags and any valuables on you hidden

Don't advertise new goods - never leave empty packaging by bins.
