Burglary offences are still being committed across Dacorum and in many cases entry is gained via front or rear UPVC doors that have not been double-locked either at night or when the house is unoccupied. Double-locking usually involves lifting the door handle to engage the multi-locking system and then turning the key to retain it in the locked position.
Our ’visiting’ burglars seem attracted to these UPVC doors as they are frequently not double-locked.
Please advise Watch members to double-lock their doors when practicable. For further advice contact David Mahon the Dacorum Police Crime Prevention Officer on 01442 271045.
