Please be on your guard against unexpected callers.

***************** Warning *****************

Please be on your guard against unexpected callers.
We have had some information from our colleagues in Bristol that visits from doorstep salesmen have been a common feature of their enquiries following recent burglaries. These salesmen are said to have travelled from the Middlesborough area.
Our advice is:
.Always put the door chain on and ask to see the pedlar's certificate of anyone selling door-to-door and if you are at all suspicious shut the door and call us straight away on 101. Selling door-to-door without a licence is an offence.
.Make sure doors and windows are secure so no one can sneak into your home while you are engaged at the front door.
.Look out for elderly and vulnerable neighbours and call us immediately if you see anyone you don't know who is acting suspiciously around a vulnerable neighbours' home. 
.Always secure all windows and doors when you are not at home. 
.Set your security alarm if you have one. 
.Use timers switches to make it appear as if someone is home. 
.Call us immediately on 101 if you have concerns about people you have seen acting suspiciously in your area. If you see a crime in progress, call 999.
