Avon and Somerset Police has released the following statement on recent burglaries in St George:

"We know the impact of burglary on householders and work hard to target offenders.
The number of burglaries in the St George area of Bristol is down by 18 per cent (44 fewer victims) in the last year, despite a spike in offences in August.
This compares with a 14 per cent reduction in burglary across Bristol (706 fewer crimes).
Officers are working with partners and communities to ensure Bristol remains a safe place to live.
We can all help to keep our neighbourhood safe by keeping our own homes secure and looking out for our neighbours by reporting suspicious incidents straight away.
Ring 999 if someone’s obviously breaking in, otherwise call 101.
We also know that Neighbourhood Watch does help to reduce crime in an area, so it’s worth signing up https://www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/services/watch-community-schemes/neighbourhood-watch-scheme/ 
Don’t create a market for stolen goods – if you’re offered items in suspicious circumstances, report it online, www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/contact, or through 101.
If you’re concerned about an issue in your area, you can raise it as a policing priority for your neighbourhood team through www.avonandsomerset.police.uk. Visit the ‘your area’ page, enter your post code and click ‘raise priority’."
