Please use this to test your home safety systems, particularly in the darkest afternoons. Consider the use of a temporary switch or a light if you are off through dark hours. It is a simple dissuasive and gives the impression that it is occupied.
Please contact the local police team on 101 or go to Andover Police Station if you would like any further advice on reducing crime.
