If you have been a victim of burglary, please call 101, or dial 999 if a crime is in progress.
We also want to take this opportunity to encourage residents to do what they can to keep their properties secure.
It may sound so simple, but keeping windows and doors locked, even when you're home, will stop opportunistic thieves from getting in. We have seen already burglaries in Ryde where thieves have wandered into someone’s home, stolen items, and walked straight back out again.
There are of course other ways to secure your windows and homes – whether you live in a flat or a house – and to secure garages and sheds.
