Distraction burglary ? Crime Prevention advice

You don't have to open the door

Most callers are genuine, but some aren't. Burglars won't go to the trouble of breaking in if they can just knock and be invited in. So always be on guard when unexpected visitors - men, women or even children - turn up at the door.
Occasionally some callers will pretend to be on official business from utility companies (gas, electricity, water) or the council. They may pretend to be trades people who are calling to carry out urgent repairs or may claim that they have lost something in your back garden.

To protect yourself from distraction burglary:

1.Beware of anyone who says they are in a hurry - if in doubt, call a neighbour or friend
2.Check to see who is at the door by using your door viewer, or looking through a front window
3.Always put the chain on before you open the door as this is a barrier against unwanted callers
4.When an unexpected caller claims they work for one of the utility companies, they must be able to quote your password and unique customer number and produce an identity card:
a.All of the utility companies operate password schemes - contact the customer services department and set up a password with them
b.Make a note of your customer number, which can be found at the top of the utility bill and keep it handy - this number is unique to your household
c.As added proof of identity, genuine trades people should carry an identification card with their photograph on -check this carefully and keep the chain on

Police Warning Re "unusual chalk markings"

It seems there maybe some truth in the old chalk marking urban legend, this morning we received this communication from West Midlands Police.

This is an URGENT message from Lauren Evans at West Midlands Police.

We are asking residents to remain vigilant for unusual white chalk markings that are appearing on residents pavements across the city.
If you come across any strange chalk markings outside of yours or another's property it is urgent that you call your Neighbourhood Team or 101 immediately.

We have experienced burglaries across the city where these markings have been draw outside the property on driveways or pavements and believe they may be characteristics of a coding system to indicate what action is to be taken by criminals.
For example, the marking of an 'X' sign indicates a 'good target for burglary'.

Please stay attentive and report any unusual behaviour or markings to Police.
