Safety Message!

Officers working in South Tyneside are reminding the public to keep their properties and vehicles secure – following reports of thefts from vehicles in the Hebburn and Jarrow areas overnight.


We would continue to ask the wider public, including businesses, to continue to work with us to help reduce the impact burglary and theft can have by ensuring doors, windows and properties are kept secure and valuables out of view.


These simple steps can hopefully deter any opportunist thieves who might be trying their luck to gain access to your home, premises or vehicles in case they have been left unlocked.


We would always encourage anybody who sees anything they believe to be suspicious to get in touch as soon as possible.


Our officers will continue to work closely with the public, businesses and partners to ensure any burglars and thieves are identified, arrested and brought to justice.


Anyone with concerns or information can speak with an officer on duty, use the ‘Report’ page of the Northumbria Police website or call 101. In an emergency, or where a crime is taking place, always dial 999.


Alternatively, you can speak to independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111.
