Police headed out on the beat last Monday to chat to Buxton residents about increasing their home security.
PC Mark Parkinson and PCSO Linda Cook from the Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Team visited the residents at Milton Court, on Broadwalk, to offer crime prevention advice.
The team were joined by a warden from the property during the visit to answer any questions or concerns from the residents.
PCSO Linda Cook from the local policing team said: “We spoke to the residents about following steps such as ensuring that no valuable items are left on display and checking that windows and doors are securely locked before leaving the property or going to bed.”
Other advice includes ensuring that house and car keys are removed from locks.
