I’ve received the following advice from the Stretford Neighbourhood Police Team in response to recent burglaries in the Barton Road area of Stretford.
I am writing to inform you that your neighbourhood has recently been targeted by burglars.
We are working to tackle this by increasing Police patrols and targeting known criminals.
One in three burglaries happen when doors and windows are left open or unlocked. Help us to help you avoid becoming a victim of burglary by following a few simple steps.
· Lock all external doors and windows whether you are at home or not
· Leave a light on or use plug in timers to operate lights and radios
· If you have an alarm use it everytime you go out or go to bed
We would urge you to report any suspicious activity, as by working together we stand a better chance of catching those responsible.
If you have a policing issue in your area or wish to speak to an officer please contact the Stretford Neighbourhood Policing Team on 0161 856 7655 or email Stretford.Area@gmp.police.uk
