New Anti-Burglary Advertising Campaign Launched


Down Area Commander Chief Inspector Deirdre Bones.[/caption] “While the number of recorded domestic burglaries in the Down area continue to drop by 2% in the last 12 months to 27 January 2013, burglary detection and prevention remains a key priority for Police. “We are particularly concerned that in nearly half of all reported domestic burglaries, entry has been gained by open or insecure windows and doors. Householders have an important responsibility to follow the simple safety advice highlighted in the advertisements – by closing, locking and checking all windows and doors before leaving your home, or going to bed at night. “I cannot stress the importance of reporting suspicious activity at the time it occurs, no matter how late the call.  The sooner we can investigate and the more evidence we can gather the better.” “By taking these simple steps, they will create a huge deterrent to an opportunistic thief. By working together with the public, we will make life difficult for burglars and create a safer Northern Ireland for everyone.” Poster advertisements will appear in key locations across Northern Ireland, supported by advertisements in buses and a series of radio advertisements. Further crime prevention advice is available on the police website or by contacting your local crime prevention officer on 0845 600 8000.]]>
