Police Safer Neighbourhood team recommendation

David Morrow from the Totteridge-Woodside Police safer neighbourhood team recently spoke to the TRA about keeping safe when walking late at night.

He recommended carrying a safety alarm. Its a tiny device that emits a very loud noise. The one one he showed us also has a small light. It was called Minder Personal Torch Alarm with high intensity COB light. these are inexpensive to buy (approx. £5).

Message from Totteridge Safer Neighbourhoods Team

Autumn is here and the clocks have gone back, meaning darker afternoons and increasing opportunities for criminals.

During the autumn and winter months burglaries do tend to increase. Homes that are left unlit during the dark afternoons act as a signal to burglars that a property is empty, so residents are being urged to follow home security advice in the months leading up to Christmas.

Totteridge Safer Neighbourhood Teams will be holding crime prevention events across ward this autumn, offering tips on keeping homes and valuables safe. We will let you know in advance.

Residents can make their homes more secure by following some basic crime prevention advice such as:

– Lock all doors and windows and ensure any type of doors are locked properly by lifting the handle and using the key to double-lock them.

– Consider installing a door bell camera, internal camera and/or monitored burglar alarm
Install ‘dusk to dawn’ external lighting and use timer switches or wi-fi plugs/systems in your home to control internal lights, radios and a simulated TV.

– Keep keys and valuables secure and out of sight.

– Ensure boundary fences are secure with side gates locked. Keep tools and ladders in a locked shed
