Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Dear Residents,

We have recently received a report of a burglary occurring in Gardner Way, Chandler’s Ford between Tuesday 9th April and Saturday 20th April (44190136478). We would like to take this opportunity to remind you to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activity.

There are certain measures you can take to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of burglary yourself, such as:
  • Don’t leave curtains/blinds open, and don’t leave valuables on show.
  • If you are going away, ask a neighbour or friend to check your house regularly.
  • Buy timer switches for lamps and radios to give the impression that someone is home.
  • Consider fitting security lighting and installing an alarm system, ensure the alarm box is clearly visible.
  • Don’t leave keys in doors – remove them and keep them close at hand, but out of sight where you can easily find them in an emergency.
  • Don’t leave your house unattended with windows open and unlocked – even for just a minute.
  • If you are in the garden or upstairs, make sure your downstairs doors and windows are closed.
  • Never leave a key under a doormat or on a string through the letterbox.
  • Check your insurance documents for any specific security requirements or upgrades.
  • Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property.
  • Ensure rear fencing is in good repair.
  • Do not leave ladders and garden tools in your garden, lock them away in your shed.
  • Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property i.e. trim high hedges.
  • Mark your property with postcode and house number and register your property for free with
