Lambwath Road Area, Hull - Crime Prevention Advice

Dear Residents,

I have recently been made aware that there may have been shed/garage burglaries in the Lambwath Road area that have not been reported to Police. I encourage you to report these incidents so that we are able to investigate and take action against crime. You may hold the final piece of information required for us to take further action. Please report any information that you may have or anything suspicious that you have seen on our non-emergency number, 101, in an emergency always call 999.

We work hard to prevent burglary and bring offenders to justice, however there are actions that householders can take to reduce the risk of being burgled.

Sheds, garages and gardens

Often the security of gardens and outbuilding buildings in them are forgotten about, while people focus on ensuring homes are safe. However by making a few modifications sheds and garages, along with the equipment stored in them can be made more secure.

Homeowners should make sure that sheds and garages have good quality lock and hinges.
They should consider fitting deterrents in the garden like movement sensitive floodlights as these will leave thieves feeling exposed. Likewise alarms on sheds and garages will deter thieves as they would not want to be spotted in out buildings taking property.
Garden tools, DIY equipment and leisure items such as fishing and golf equipment should be locked away in storage cupboards within outbuildings to form a second line of defence to thieves. 
Motorbike and pedal cycles should also be locked even when they are in a shed or garage.
To assist the police in recovering and returning stolen property, people should register valuables onto Cycles, golf and fishing equipment and tools can be easily added onto the property register and then this assists the force in identifying property as stolen/lost, bring offenders to justice and stop the items being sold via second hand stores. The system can also allow owners to upload pictures of unique items.
As well as protecting property in sheds and garages people can also stop thieves stealing plants by using heavy plant pots which will be less desirable to walk off with and ensure that unused garden furniture and tools are stored securely out of sight.


If you want to make sure you get an approved locksmith to fit your locks please use the Master Locksmiths Association. Why use the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA)? Are you Looking for a locksmith near you? Make sure you use one who has met the 3 key criteria of being:- vetted; inspected and qualified [MLA]
