Homeowners urged to be vigilant against burglars

19 February 2013

New Chichester district commander Tanya Jones wants residents to work closely with her in cracking down on burglaries and thefts.

Most of these crimes are committed by opportunist thieves and she is urging people to be vigilant and secure their properties in the Chichester district.

Chief Inspector Tanya Jones moved to the area as a Detective Inspector from the West Sussex Priority Crime Team where one of her top priorities was investigating burglaries

Now one of her priorities is helping to reduce burglaries taking place.

She said: "Since I have arrived as the new District Commander at Chichester on January 21 2013 it seems that some crimes could have been prevented if residents made sure their properties were properly secured.
"People leave valuables, such as wallets or laptops on display in their vehicles and then leave their vehicles insecure.

"Many offenders who break into cars, homes and garages are opportunist thieves, who simply try doors to see if they are open. I would urge owners to make every effort to deter them by securing their doors and windows. By working together we can reduce burglaries and thefts, the upset and the great inconvenience they cause.

"So a plea from Sussex Police, please think twice and check before you leave your house or car to make sure it is locked, and please remove valuables from cars before you park it at home, at a sporting event, go shopping or take the dog for a walk. It is such an easy thing to do, and together we can make it harder for offenders to commit crime."
