Surrey Police: Sheds

Don’t lose a shed load
SURREY Police is running a campaign to raise awareness of thefts from sheds and is giving advice to residents on how to protect their property from thieves.
Although you might not think your shed is worth much, when you consider the lawnmower; the bike; the power tools; the golf clubsthe tennis rackets; the ladder; and the barbeque, they all add up.
By taking a few simple measures such as marking your property and getting a shed alarm padlock you could reduce the likelihood of being targeted.
As part of the campaign Surrey Police and Eagle Radio (96.4FM) will be running three road shows; on Saturday 24 March in Guildford – Town Bridge; Saturday 31 March in Staines – High St; and Saturday 14 April in Leatherhead – High St.
For the chance to obtain a free shed alarm padlock, residents can take a photo of their shed on a phone or camera and bring it to one of the roadshows. For more details on the roadshow and security advice please
Chief Superintendent Gavin Stephens from Surrey Police Neighbourhood Command said: “In recent years we have seen a rise in thefts from sheds and garages in the lead up to the summer. This campaign aims to raise awareness and give residents practical advice in order to reduce the risk of it happening to them. The advice is simple – don’t lose a shed load, lock it and alarm it”.
