The June edition already! When I was writing about protecting your property back in the winter, little did we know where would be right now. First and foremost, I hope you are all keeping safe and well. These unprecedented times are a real test for many of us. I won’t talk about it too much as I think things may have slightly changed in relation to lockdown rules by the time this is published. But the message is still the same and to please keep safe. All information on this can be found on the Gov.uk website.Locally, sadly crime is still happening. We recently highlighted property security on Facebook live from Hadleigh and sadly thefts are still occurring at properties. While many people are working at home, home schooling or self-isolating, please remember to still keep your property secure and safe. There are still those criminals who will take advantage of any situation.
There has also been quite a lot of social media put out by Trading Standards and the police about scams that are taking place during this time.
Please keep up to date with this information by looking at Hadleigh Police on Twitter and Facebook where relevant updates are posted. Suffolk Trading Standards are also posting on these platforms about scams.
