Area Commander, Ch Insp Ian Hunter, added: “We will also have officers from the neighbourhood teams and Community Safety Partnership visiting residents in roads where burglaries have occurred to offer both reassurance and additional crime prevention advice.

I would also like to make the assurance that we have a dedicated team of detectives thoroughly investigating every burglary we have reported to us to ensure that we catch those responsible and that they are brought to justice but we need you to help us to stop any more from happening.

Most burglars are opportunists and we want to make it as hard as possible for them to be able to offend. The neighbourhood team and additional officers have been patrolling the area and we will continue to carry out frequent patrols in the area until these burglaries stop.''

Below are some crime prevention tips to help keep your property secure:

•Keep all windows on the ground floor shut at night and only open during the day if you are in the room which has the open window.

•Keep your back door locked and only open when you need to

•Do not leave keys in your doors or window locks.

•Remove all keys, handbags and purses/wallets from sight

•Fit a burglar alarm if you can.

The warm weather may tempt you to visit some of the outstanding beauty spots in the Chilterns this weekend and we offer similar advice to motorists.

•Do not leave valuables on display in your car

•Remember to always lock your car when leaving it unattended

Anyone with any information about the burglaries is urged to contact Thames Valley Police on 0845 8 505 505. If you don’t want to speak to police and don’t want to leave your name contact the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
