Not If But When is a campaign we are running jointly with Northumbria University Students' Union and Northumbria Police. This is mainly to tackle the problem of burglary in student residential areas - working to keep your property and belongings more secure!
· 60% of student burglaries are ‘walk-ins’
· Students are targeted because they have a high number of valuables
· Jesmond and Heaton are the most vulnerable areas
Our team of Not If But When volunteers went round Jesmond and Heaton in December, putting balloons through any open window or door we could find. If you found a balloon floating around in your property you are at high risk of being burgled! If a balloon can get in who else can?
