Crime update
Some incidents have involved outbuildings, sheds, garages and carports being broken into. Often these outbuildings are not alarmed or protected by external beams.

Please note that vehicles and vehicle contents are targeted. Vehicles parked outside a garage are vulnerable and it is suggested that external beams be installed as an early warning trigger.
