Students are being asked just to make sure they Lock their Doors and Windows when they leave their accommodation, even if they are just popping out to the shop. Community Liaison Officer Robin Benson is working with the Students Union and the Police to run a Lock Yer Gaff Campaign to help ensure students don’t become victims to burglaries and lose lots of vital possessions. A recent street operation revealed a high proportion of student houses had their front door unlocked and had insecure windows making them easy targets.
Recent evidence also suggests that loads of bikes are also being nicked from students, mostly enabled by students using cheap and ineffective bike locks. The Union and the University and the Police are all working together to keep students safe and free from becoming a victim of crime….it’s just commonsense to Lock Yer Gaff!
