Detective Sergeant Mark Corkin from the Local Crime Unit at Hatfield Police Station said: "We are carrying out enquiries into recent crimes which have occurred in Hatfield to identify the owners of these items and have already been able to reunite a number of people with their property. However we've been able to identify the owners of these items listed so I would ask anyone who believes this property is theirs to make contact as soon as possible. They may have been taken during a burglary or from vehicles within the past month."
Police are asking residents to take note of the following security advice:
Make sure you double-lock any UPVC doors by lifting the handle and locking it (to engage the security features) before you go to bed or leave your home (if you remove the key make sure you have a fire escape plan).
Check all doors are locked and all windows, including those upstairs, are secure before you go out
Consider installing alarms and 'dusk to dawn' security lighting
Secure your rear garden - lock your shed, shut and lock any gates and keep fences maintained. Don't leave ladders and tools outside - they could be used by a burglar
Use timer switches on lamps to give the impression somebody is at home
At home, keep all loose valuables out of sight of any would-be thieves.
Don't leave any boxes which advertise to thieves what's available in your home outside by the dustbin. Where possible, keep your wheelie bin a good distance behind the gate or fence to prevent them being used to get into the garden.
Post code marking your valuables with a UV pen and registering them on a free property database like www.immobilise.com can work as a deterrent to thieves and can increase the chances of your property being recovered if it is stolen.
