Information sent on behalf of Sussex Police

Thursday 7th November, 2019

Dear resident,

We have received a number of reports of Burglaries across Brighton and Hove where car keys have been removed from the property and vehicles subsequently stolen.

We strongly urge you to do whatever you can to secure your home and vehicle and keeping your items safe and secure.

Make it as hard as possible for opportunists to burgle your home by:

 - Use locks at all times, even if you are at home

 - If you leave your house empty lock all doors and windows and make sure fanlight windows are closed. Be especially careful about those on the ground floor and above flat roof areas

 - Close and lock all windows and doors

 - Consider installing a burglar alarm and CCTV

 - Keep wallets, purses, credit cards and car keys out of sight from windows and letterboxes
