Detective Chief Inspector Gayle Rooney, who is one of the senior officers on the team, said:
“Offenders who break into other people’s homes are stealing far more from their victims than just the face-value of jewellery, electronics or a car.
“A burglary comes at a huge personal cost to the victims. It is so much more than coping with the expense of replacing stolen items and repairing any damage caused. Burglary shatters lives. It is the heartache of losing sentimental items that no money could ever replace and the violation of their feelings of security and safety in their own homes.”
Officers are stepping up patrols and encouraging residents to make things as tough as possible for potential burglars by following crime prevention advice and reporting anyone acting suspiciously.
Det Chief Insp Rooney added:
“Burglaries have fallen across Merseyside over the last three years thanks to our robust and targeted policing operation – Operation Castle.
“However, you can help us to keep your homes safe. It is very important that people are extra-vigilant this time of year and ensure that they take home security seriously.
“Many burglaries can be prevented by taking very simple measures such as ensuring all windows and doors are locked, even when at home.
“We want to help you make sure that your Christmas is remembered for all the right reasons.”
In the late autumn and winter homes can be left in darkness for longer, giving criminals more opportunity to break in, but improving security features like locks and alarms, and making sure your house always looks occupied can make a big difference.
People also often leave their doors unlocked while inside their homes and those with UPVC doors can forget to push the handle up as well as turn the key.
Opportunists can try dozens of handles in a street until they find one that opens, so make sure you always lock your windows and doors.
Don’t let offenders spoil your family’s Christmas this year. Make sure you follow crime prevention advice to protect your home and keep unwanted visitors out.
