    Door stop callers crime prevention reminder from Hertfordshire Police.
    Distraction burglary means quite literally that a criminal will gain access to your property under false pretences and attempt to distract you while they or a colleague carry out a burglary. Police advise never letting anyone you are not expecting into your home, whatever excuse they may give. If you are not sure, don't open the door and call police if you feel the caller is suspicious. You can help prevent your neighbours from becoming victims.
