The Met Police have issued advise to residents reminding them to secure their properties at this time of year.
As the nights draw in, and darkness sets in earlier, the Metropolitan Police have offered advice to residents to help prevent crime and reduce burglaries.
Hillingdon's Sgt Chris Kerr provided the following advice and links, which we recommend residents to take notice of to avoid becoming a victim this winter.
Due to the time of the year and the fact that the evenings are darker much earlier, I wanted to give you all some useful information on crime prevention. The first two links I have attached relate to burglary and general crime prevention. The third link takes you to the Hillingdon Neighbourhood Watch web site.
You can contact the local police team on 020 8246 1869. Non emergencies can be reported on number 101 and as always, emergencies and to report a crime in progress, dial 999.
