Crime Prevention advice during Ramadan

Alert message sent 08/06/2017 11:29:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

27th May – 25th June 2017 – Ramadan
Muslims in the UK are facing the longest Ramadan in 33 years as the holy month coincides with the summer solstice, meaning long days of fasting.
What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and a time when Muslims will fast during the hours of daylight. It lasts for 29 or 30 days.

Crime Prevention advice during Ramadan:
At this time of year, members of the Muslim community make regular visits to mosques and to ensure their valuables remain safe at home people are being urged to lock their doors and windows and use burglar alarms where possible.
  • People should try to leave a light on or use a timer switch when they leave the house to give the impression there is someone at home.
  • Cars parked outside religious buildings during prayer times should be locked with all valuables removed – including purses, handbags, loose change and sat navs.
  • We are also asking people to be considerate when parking their cars. Parking inconsiderately can cause a danger to other road users particularly pedestrians and children so please comply with parking restrictions.
  • We will continue to work with mosques to raise awareness of crime prevention during Ramadan and I would encourage anyone with concerns or information about crime to contact us by ringing 101
