Sent out to local residents via social media today:
I am sure by now you have all heard about the spate of domestic burglaries targeting high value jewellery and cash in Batley, as well as in Dewsbury and elsewhere.
I have spoken to some of the victims and am in daily contact with the police. The police are treating this issue very seriously and their investigations are active. My office is also treating this issue with the utmost importance.
Please share the link below far and wide. This is advice from the Police’s North Kirklees Crime Prevention Officer which is specific to these crimes. It is good advice, please take five minutes to read it and pass it on.
Until the perpetrators of these crimes are apprehended we all need to do what we can to stay safe and also support friends and family members who may be vulnerable.
The first thing to remember is report anything suspicious to the police, by dialling 101.
Stay safe everyone, and please do not hesitate to get in touch with me on 01924 910 499 or firstname.lastname@example.org
