The Cherwell neighbourhood policing team will be starting their autumn burglary campaign on Monday 23 November.

The week of action aims to reduce burglaries by raising awareness about how to keep properties safe during the darker evenings and neighbourhood officers in Banbury will host crime prevention stands in the town.

There will be one in Banbury town centre outside HMV on Saturday from 10am - 2pm and one outside the shops on Orchard Way on Tuesday, November 24 from 10am-2pm.

Officers will offer advice on how best to protect your home from burglars and will answer any home security questions.

Burglary dwelling in Cherwell has fallen by seven percent from 111 this time last year to 103 this year.

Detective Sergeant Jade Hewitt of Local CID based at Banbury police station said: “We can only achieve this type of reduction with the continued support of the public.

“We want to encourage people to use timer lights, remember not to put Christmas gifts on display and always ensure your house is secure.

“If you want any more advice please come and see the neighbourhood team at the crime prevention stands.”
