Alert message sent 17/12/2021 10:24:00

Information sent on behalf of Staffordshire Police

Please take some simple measures this Christmas to keep you and your property safe.

In your car:

1 Remove all items from your car.
2 Don't leave any shopping on show.
3 Place your shopping in your boot and make sure it is locked.

In your home:

1 Make sure you lock all your windows and doors even if you are only going out for a short while.
2 Make sure that Christmas presents are out of view.
3 Please take any large packaging to the tip rather than leaving for the bin persons to avoid advertising new items.

Out and about:

1 Keep wallets, purses and phones safe and out of sight.
2 If you use a handbag place the strap across your shoulder and the zip, clip, button etc facing into your body.
3 Try and use a cash machine that is inside the bank/shop and always be aware of who is behind you and always shield your PIN.

Always remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to Staffordshire Police on 101.
