Harrow United Deaf Club have recieved this email from Harrow Police and wanted to share this vital information with you all about keeping your home safe from burglars. The leaflets below from Harrow Police is easy to read with some visual pictures and the link for each flyer is available in PDF.
Dear Resident/Key Contact/Business,
Historically criminals take advantage of the clock change and darker nights. This time of year also sees many families bring out Gold Jewellery from Storage for Religious Festivals.
Harrow Police are launching Operation Conker to combat this problem. We are working closely with Harrow Council to do this. Numerous activities are planned from Crime Prevention initiatives, increased High Visibility patrols and covert (undercover) policing.
The official launch will be this Friday 19th September. Sergeant Jamie Kay from Harrow Police will be talking about Operation Conker and will be available to answer questions on Harrow Community radio from 7:30am on Friday morning. To listen go to hcrfm.org. There will also be a launch event at Harrow Town Centre (Outside St Georges), St Ann’s Road on Friday between 1PM & 3PM. Feel free to come down and sign up for Free Anti Burglary Products such as Timer Switches.
Attached are crime prevention posters for your information around Locks, Making Your Home look lived in, protecting Sheds & improving security.
Please read the attached and be careful on how you store and wear your gold. Also be careful around lighting Candles. Use a Heat Resistant holder that will not be knocked over and away from items such as curtains.
Follow us on Twitter @MPSHarrow for the latest updates on the operation & news.
Please feel free to pass this email onto anyone you feel would benefit from it. Harrow Police are building a database of community contacts like yourself. Please get in touch if you know anyone or any groups that would like to be added to this list so we can pass important community information to make Harrow the Safest Borough in London.
