Subject: Perry Vale Ward - Crime Alert Message

Dear residents,
Over the past two weeks, there have been a number of pedal cycles stolen from rear gardens across Perry Vale Ward. This type of theft can be easily prevented by ensuring your cycle is securely fastened to an immobile or heavy structure or better still, kept indoors. In addition to this, marking or etching your postcode and house number on bicycles that are valuable is a good deterrent to thieves because they know these items are more easily traced by the police, and it reduces their ability to sell these items on.
Further to this, there have been a number of occasions where home owners have found their gardens have been entered. Although nothing had been taken, we believe this may have been someone intending to enter the garden shed. Can residents please make sure that if they have a shed, it is secured with a suitable lock as well as ensuring all gates or entrances to their gardens are secure in order to prevent easy access.
If you would like further information on home and garden security, please go to the Metropolitan Police Website which has a wealth of crime prevention advice under the appropriate headers or contact us at:
