Please be assured we are completing targeted patrols relating to recent vehicle crime in Burbage.
There is also work ongoing to identify criminals involved in this activity that cannot be disclosed whilst investigations are ongoing.
Despite recent reports, please be assured No guns have been involved in any incidents in Burbage.

High value or high performance vehicles have been the target in these incidents. If you or your community wish to meet with me to discuss any concerns, please contact me.
General advice relating to vehicle crime,

* Do not leave keys on display or easy to reach.
*”block” your vehicle in if possible, please use a garage if you have one.
* Use a steering lock and ensure you have a tracker and it is active.
* CCTV, outdoor light, Bollards are all preventative measures.
* If you are concerned by activity or suspicious vehicles ensure you call 101 or 999 immediately.
* Ensure you switch on your house alarm, also consider window alarms to disrupt criminals.
* I have a few “Anti-theft screws” for number plates at the office. These help to slow down the process of removing your number plate.
* If you have CCTV and have any footage of recent incidents, remember to contact Police to support with investigations.

Please be aware we are unable to comment on ongoing investigations but please be assured we are investigating, patrolling and trying to reduce these incidents.

Please get in touch if you would like any support.
