Happy Diwali from Nottinghamshire Police

We’re looking forward to celebrating Diwali with our Indian communities this weekend.

At this festive time of year, it is worth reminding people on how best to protect their homes from potential burglars.

Detective Chief Inspector Kevin Broadhead, Nottinghamshire Police’s lead for burglary, said: “We’d like to wish everyone a happy Diwali from Nottinghamshire Police.

“While we have no reason to believe that there has been an influx of burglaries targeting the Asian community, we want everyone to feel safe in their own homes with minimal risk to their valuables.

“I’d encourage everyone in our Asian communities follow our advice below and report any signs of suspicious activity to us as soon as you can.”


• At home, lock your doors and windows and keep jewellery out of sight
• Invest in a concealed safe or hire a security box from a reputable high street bank or security company
• Invest in a burglar alarm and remember to turn it on
• Insure your jewellery and keep your policies up-to-date
• Photograph your jewellery and register it online at to help improve the chances of being reuinited with your jewellery if it is lost or stolen
• Security mark your jewellery using products like Smartwater and SelectaDNA
• Be discreet with jewellery in public places

If you see anything suspicious, please do not hesitate to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
