Warm Weather Advice from Staffordshire Police

Your latest Smart Alert.

As the warm weather continues, it is important to remember to keep safe as opportunist thieves will seize the chance to burgle your property.

We would remind all residents to ensure all doors and windows are closed and secure - even if you are in the garden or upstairs - thieves can 'sneak in' and take your property.

Store valuables and keys away out of view of doors and windows.

Ensure all bikes, toys and garden furniture are securely stored away and/or suitable locking devices used.

Please ensure all sheds and garages are left secure - always use good quality locks.
Remember to keep hydrated - plan your journey and allow extra time for stops.

If you see an unattended child in a locked car or a distressed animal call 999 immediately.
