Total incidents have hit a very welcomed low this week, matching the lowest total incidents in a week since the introduction of level 3 lockdown restrictions. This is an achievement for the entire community, as criminals have not been given the freedom to fill their pockets with your possessions.
There is, however, a very strong criminal trend that has raised its head that residents need to take very seriously. This trend is the targeting of garages, and we are making it easy for criminals.
There are multiple benefits for the criminal to target the garage of a premises:
- The garage is often not protected with passives, magnets etc. making it very low risk to get in and out.
- Garages often contain very valuable items ie. bicycles, power tools, car sounds systems etc.
- In many homes, the garage is attached to the main house, creating an easier entry point into the home through an unprotected garage.
