Cops Send Thieves Christmas Cards

Filed under: General — admin @ 4:29 pm

A new iniative in South Devon has seen the local Police in Torbay send Christmas Cards out to well known thieves and trouble makers in the area. Although the message contained within the cards did spread some Christmas cheer it also reminded the petty criminals that they are being monitored and not to engage in criminal behaviour over the festive period.

xmas-tree-crimeSuperintendent Chris Singer said: “We have just written Christmas cards to 20 prominent individuals reminding them we are monitoring criminal activities … It is a reminder to people we are out there and just because it is Christmas, it does not mean we have taken our eyes off the ball.”

The majority of offences created over the Christmas and New Year period are drink driving or assault related but opportunistic thieves don’t have holidays. Which is why you should consider Home Security issues if you are going away for a few days to visit friends and families over the Christmas and New Year break.

Even in the lead-up to Christmas, criminals know that most homes will have gifts all nicely wrapped up for them and sitting conviently in the one place under the Christmas Tree. Try to be smart and don’t leave presents in perfect clear view and if you are going away for Christmas then protect your home with Security Timers to turn on your inside lights. Most of all, don’t give thieves a chance this Christmas.
