November Police Advice

Remember, remember this Fifth of November…to make sure your home is secure against burglars. The run up to bonfire and fireworks season leads to a jump in burglaries – with more happening in Sussex on 5 November than any other day of the year.

Simple things like making sure windows and doors are locked, putting lights on a timer and not leaving valuables on display can make the difference between being burgled or not.

For crime prevention advice visit  If you see or hear a burglary taking place call 999 immediately.
