Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

THE heat is on and bur­glar­ies re­main an is­sue. The warmer weather en­tices crooks to get out and about, co­in­cid­ing with house­hold­ers leav­ing win­dows open and un­locked. This creates the per­fect storm for a rise in crime. We all need to do our part and as house­hold­ers we need to en­sure our homes are se­cure, which means doors and win­dows are locked. If you leave your win­dows open for some fresh air, make sure you have suit­able se­cu­rity locks at­tached. Crooks gen­er­ally look for the eas­i­est op­tion.. Also re­mem­ber to re­port sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour. Trust your in­stincts; if a per­son or a ve­hi­cle looks sus­pi­cious, it prob­a­bly is sus­pi­cious and you need to call po­lice on 131 444. – Palmyra Po­lice Sta­tion Se­nior Sergeant Gavin Radice
