Building sites and outbuildings in Uttlesford targeted by thieves
Thousands of pounds worth of workmen’s tools, gardening tools and equipment have been stolen during a series burglaries at building sites, garden sheds and outbuildings in Uttlesford, a recent news report in the local media has been able to find.
An Essex Police spokesman said: “In springtime we often notice an increase in shed burglaries.
“We are working with Neighbourhood Watch to encourage residents to take steps to secure their property. Such as putting a lock on your shed/garage door and using it, a shed door can be further secured with a ‘shed bar’ coach bolted through the frame.
“Also with larger tools and bikes consider fitting a shed shackle to the wall or ‘eye’ type anchor into a concrete floor and chain it to this. “Consideration should be given to getting a shed alarm; they are quite reasonably priced from DIY stores or internet, and effective.”
Tensor RDAPS – the UK’s first and only Secured by Design accredited self-sustained security surveillance system for enhanced construction site security
The Tensor Rapid Deployment Asset Protection System (RDAPS) is the UK’s first and only Secured by Design accredited self-sustained security surveillance system designed to prevent crime and gather evidence in remote sites and trouble hotspots.
The RDAPS includes a high-definition camera system of evidential quality and a self-contained high-definition NVR platform with full video analytics capabilities, fully integrated 2-way audio and alarms, capable of delivering extensive remote location, building site and major events security.
Featuring a rugged, weather and vandal-proof design, RDAPS has been designed to protect assets located in vulnerable or remote locations, where current constraints exist due to a lack of power and/or communications. The system is equipped with a Solar/Wind Turbine charged battery system, as well as multiple wireless communication platforms (Wi-Fi, 3G/4G, etc.).
The Tensor Rapid Deployment Asset Protection System is totally transportable and can be re-deployed as frequently as required on multiple sites – in under 40 minutes. Our unique purpose built tower provides a platform which transports the system from site to site and when in ‘deployed-mode’ forms a self-contained secure working platform, functioning as a fully integrated remote video system.
