DISTRACTION BURGLARIES and THEFTS

Most callers are genuine, but some aren't. Burglars won't go to the trouble of breaking in if they can just knock and be invited in. They may pretend to be Council or Utility company staff, or perhaps tradesmen. If you're unsure, ask the caller to come back later so that you can arrange for a friend or relative to be present.

Crime prevention can found on the West Mercia Police website, for further details please see the Crime & Safety section
