Please be aware of distraction burglaries

Essex Police are reporting a number of distraction burglaries in Clacton recently, in which all victims are elderly. These are people who live independently and not in staffed care homes.

Essex Police CID want to get the message to care agencies, social care, adult services etc so that carers/charity workers/people who work with or care for elderly people in the community can make sure their clients are safe, can advise them, but also be on the lookout for anything suspicious.
