At recent Neighbourhood Support Meetings and other community events, people have raised concerns about suspicious people on their street and what to do should they see someone they think may be up to no good.
With burglaries and car crime still an issue in the area, it’s good to be vigilant and know what is happening in your street. Here is an article by Constable Julia Williams that includes some guidelines and hints when dealing with such incidents.
More good news which is pleasing. Burglaries have dropped slightly once again so the statistics are trending in the right direction. It’s particularly pleasing to see the theft ex car figures dropping sharply. They are now 50% below those in the middle of the year.
