With St Helena’s Day just around the corner, the St Helena Police would like to remind the public to keep their personal belongings safe and secure, especially when in busy open areas and when attending events.

Head of Investigations, DCI Michael Luke, said:

“It is important that the public remain vigilant and look after their personal effects to deter opportunistic crimes. The Police Directorate have recently dealt with two young boys for the theft of cash from a member of the public who was using the swimming pool.

“These crimes can be prevented if the opportunity to take the money is removed by keeping personal effects in secure places and out of view.

“The public should be able to go about their business without the fear of crime, but unfortunately there are rare occasions when incidents such as this will occur.

“If you would like some Crime Prevention advice, please contact the Police Directorate on telephone: 22626.”
