KSS Incidents 21 - 29 February 2020

Dear KSS Clients

Please note that there has been a recent spike in pretty and opportunistic crime. There have also been numerous reports of intruders in gardens. Please don’t leave possessions lying in full view from the road. Alarm your property. Electronic items such as TV’s, cell phones, computers, laptops and microwaves as well as garden equipment, tools and bicycles are the items criminals are after. All these items can easily be carried away.

Alarms
There were a number of break-ins where the alarms were not armed or linked to outbuildings, sheds or cottages these past 10 days. Please be vigilant about setting your alarm and please secure verandas, outbuildings, sheds and cottages. If you have no alarm system or an old alarm system, please consider an upgrade.

Don’t provide cover for would be criminals (cut back foliage)
Deter criminals from targeting your house by ensuring you cut back trees and bushes. Investigate installing movement sensor lights and report broken street lights.

Clear foliage away from your PIR beams
Excessive foliage and pot plants placed in front of external PIR beams will not only result in possible false alarms, but also render them useless in detecting criminal’s approaching your house. If you have invested in these external PIR beams, please ensure that they remain unobscured.

There were 7 incidents in Howick. There were 6 incidents in Merrivale. There were 3 incidents in Howick West. There was 1 incident in Hilton. There was 1 incident in Tweedie.
