Students share advice on security

Students braved wintry weather in order to help police spread crime-prevention advice during this year’s Dunkirk Week of Action.

Volunteers knocked on doors to pass on simple advice to help fewer people fall victim to burglary.

Students living off campus are being told to close all windows and lock all doors before going out, to put all laptops and valuables out of sight and use free services such as Smart Water, to mark their property so that it can be traced.

Melanie Futer, Manager Off-Campus Student Affairs, said “Most burglars are opportunists, and a third of student burglaries happen when homes have been left insecurely.

“By offering some simple advice, we can help more students to take responsibility for their possessions and make sure they don’t give burglars any chances.

“The Love Your Stuff crime prevention campaign has been a great success in the past, as shown by the decrease in the number of burglaries.

“This year we are once more spreading the crime prevention message by working closely with students and the police.”

Nottinghamshire Police are also urging students to register electrical items, including mobile phones and computers, on the Immobilse property database. This helps police reunite stolen items with their owners.
