A special project has been launched in Ashfield to combat a predicted springtime increase in thefts from garden sheds and outbuildings.

For the last three years Ashfield has seen a marked increase in thefts from garden sheds and outbuildings in April and May, with these and similar offences accounting for between 10 and 15 per cent of all crime in the area.

As a result, Ashfield Community Safety Partnership is funding an awareness-raising campaign in conjunction with Crimestoppers, to remind people about securing their sheds and protecting the property stored in them and to encourage people to anonymously pass on information about anyone they know is involved in these thefts.
