Alert message sent 13/04/2018 13:55:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Following 19 vehicle thefts in Houghton Regis, Dunstable and Luton in the past three weeks, where car keys were stolen from houses, we are issuing advice about how you can reduce your chances of becoming a victim of crime.
• Keep house doors and windows locked at all times, and ensure that when locking doors, they are double locked
• Remove all door keys from locks and keep both house keys and car keys in a safe place out of view from windows and letter boxes
• Keep hallways clear of valuables like car keys, handbags and electrical equipment where they may be seen

Bedfordshire Police remains committed to tackling burglary and robbery through Operation Fidelity. Launched in 2015, Op Fidelity is our dedicated response to burglary and robbery, made up of officers from various areas of the force working to tackle these issues.

Those involved in the year-round operation are continuing to identify long-term hotspots, short-term spikes and key offending patterns, and aim to find and bring to justice those people responsible for burglaries.

For  more information on keeping your home safe visit our website.

To report suspicious activity, call 101 or visit our online reporting centre. In case of an emergency, dial 999.  Alternatively you can give information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
