    Home Security Tips:
    Don't become a victim of crime, follow these easy steps below:

    • Lock all windows and doors – even if you’re at home. 
    • A well-lit home gives the impression someone is in.
    • Leave a light on or use timer switches so lights come on when it gets dark.
    • Don’t leave valuables on show. 
    • Don’t leave your house and vehicle keys in the lock or on a side table in view of a window, making it easy for a thief to fish them through your letterbox.
    • Don’t leave curtains closed during the day, only in the evening and overnight.
    • If you have a house alarm, use it. 
    • Contact your local neighbourhood police team if you see anything suspicious in your area.

    As part of the campaign, people are also being reminded to always lock their vehicles when leaving them unattended, and remove all valuables from sight.
    “Vehicles left unattended with valuables left on display or unlocked are a magnet for criminals, who will often try a number of car door handles until they find one that has been left open,” added Ch Insp Davies.
    “It only takes a few seconds to make sure you’ve locked the door, but it could mean the difference between having your car stolen or having it there when you return.
    “In the run up to the festive season when traditionally people are doing more shopping, they should also remove items from their vehicles before leaving them unattended, or lock them out of sight in the boot.”

    During the campaign, PCSOs will also be patrolling key hotspot areas which have seen an increase in burglaries, thefts from vehicles and antisocial behaviour.
    To report any suspicious activity in your area, contact Durham Constabulary on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.


    Do you want to find out what's really happening in your area - receive regular crime updates, information on road closures and learn about what your policing team is doing?
    Keep In The Know is a free messaging service brought to you by Durham Constabulary where you decide when and how you are kept informed about the issues that matter to you.
    We believe that by improving the flow of information between the community and its police we can all make a greater impact in the prevention and detection of crime and anti-social behaviour.
    www.keepintheknow.co.uk provides an invitation for you to participate in the exchange of information with Durham Constabulary and Neighbourhood Watch.
    You do not need to join a specific watch scheme but you may find that there are like-minded residents or businesses in your area who would welcome your support.
    As a registered recipient you will not only benefit from two way messaging but may also hear about positive police action in your community, help identify suspected or wanted criminals or learn about community groups, events or meetings in your area.
    Meanwhile, we have also launched a sister site www.farmwatchdurhamanddarlington.co.uk to keep you informed about rural and farming issues that matter to you.
    We look forward to keeping you In The Know!
