Recently there has been an increase in burlgaries in Mt Cook, Newtown, Karori and Johnsonville.
Police are putting an operation together for the end of September to target offenders and their activity and also provide education for residents of the Newtown and Mt Cook areas.
Police are asking Newtown residents to remember to take basic security precautions such as locking all doors and windows when out, using alarms if they are installed and calling Police if they see any suspicious behaviour with people hanging around places where they shouldn’t be.
Items that are being targeted specifically are jewellery, I phones and cameras.
A simple precaution to take is to make sure items such are these are stored out of view.
