Businesses urged to review security after burglaries

Police are urging businesses to review their security following a rise in commercial burglaries on the Island.

The Isle of Man Constabulary revealed cash and power tools have been taken from premises while they've been unoccupied in recent weeks.

Officers say the thefts have had a significant impact, preventing some of the businesses from working or paying wages to staff.

Police suggest companies don't leave items of value such as cash and tools on their premises, and to review locks, CCTV and alarm systems.

Anyone with information on any of the burglaries is asked to contact Police Headquarters on 631212.
