Police in rural Stirlingshire are asking farmers, landowners and other rural property owners to check their security to protect against thefts in Trossachs, Teith, Forth and Endrick areas.
Large and small plant, diesel fuel, trailers, quads, and scrap metal are all the type of items that, if not secured can be attractive to thieves.
You can take simple steps to protect your property.
Lock all doors and leave a light on or fit light switch timers. Keep items under lock and key and consider CCTV and/or an alarm system, this need not be costly. Often the simple steps are the most effective like reporting anything suspicious to your local police at the time.
Reporting all suspicious vehicles, people, or other activity straight away to the police helps us find them quickly and where they have committed crime, ensure that they are prosecuted.
Police Scotland can offer free security advice and guidance on reasonable steps that can be taken to guard against thieves and help protect your property.
If you feel you could benefit from this advice then please call 101 and ask for your local area Community Constable. We want to help you minimise your chances of becoming a victim of crime.
