Residents of Henley are strongly advised to take advantage of a police sponsored discount on Smartwater marking kits after the recent spate of burglaries in Henley town . These kits ( which will mark up to 50 items and come with warning stickers which it is imperative are displayed prominently at the front and the back of your property) are available at a  £10 one off cost for the month of January only. Despite promoting property marking heavily in the hotspot burglary areas only 2 households so far have bought a marking kit .

You can reserve a kit by phoning 101 and asking for Paul Duncan at the front office at Henley police station. Alternatively if you would like a PCSO to deliver a kit and complete a review of your current security then please again phone Paul Duncan and he will arrange for an officer to contact you.

If sufficient people in a road buy kits then the Community Safety partnership will donate metal street signs to the road to be displayed as a deterrent.
