Barrack room theft is all to common at a number of establishments and very often it could be avoided. In the first instance, take the simple steps of ensuring that valuables are locked way in a locked wall locker, safe or locked desk drawer; even within a securely locked room.
When out, ensure that your room is left secure with doors and windows locked.
Ensure that you property mark your valuable items. As Service Personnel are transient, we recommend property marking using your service number + Army/Navy/RAF as opposed to a postcode.
