Humberside Police is holding a series of burglary prevention drop-in sessions at the University of Hull this week.

Officers will be present in the reception area of the university’s students’ union from Monday until Friday to offer advice about all aspects of home security.

Students will learn about locking homes, setting burglar alarms and other tips to ensure thieves are less likely to target their property.

They can also receive help to register valuables on UK national property register www.immobilise.com.

The five-day scheme is part of Humberside Police initiative Operation Impact – which is running across November to tackle burglary and the handling of stolen good in the region.

PC Andy Allen, Humberside Police crime reduction officer, said: “These events have been developed as part of Operation Impact to assist students in making their own homes more secure, increasing the number of people with www.immobilise.com accounts and raising awareness in how people can assist the police by reporting criminality and neighbourhood issues in the area.”

Humberside Police urges anyone who witnesses a burglary taking place to call 999 (in an emergency) and 101 (in a non-emergency).

Alternatively, they can contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
