Local priorities

The following priorities have been identified by the community and the police:

  1. Burglary – Last month there was unfortunately two burglaries. This is a lower amount than the previous month which is good but is still too many. Now the clocks have changed and it is getting darker much later as well as the weather getting warmer it is important to remember to secure your property when going out by locking your windows and doors. Security lighting and CCTV cameras are excellent ways of providing additional security to your home. It is also important to secure the rear of your property by making sure your bins are not near fences as this makes them easier to climb over.
  2. Burglary non-dwelling – April had one burglary non-dwellings which is more than the previous month.  There are many security options for garages and sheds such as strong locks, shed/garage alarms and security lighting is also useful for the rear of properties. On days when bins are not being collected do not leave them near your back gate or fences as these can be used to easily climb over and into your property so instead leave them well behind a gate in another secure location.
  3. Theft from vehicle – Last month there had been five thefts from motor vehicle offence on the east. This is unfortunately the same as for the month of April. A large amount of these thefts were of catalytic converters from vans. When leaving your vehicle it is important to remember to remove all valuable items from the vehicle. If this is not an option it is important to hide them well so they are not able to be seen from outside the vehicle. Also if leaving the car over night, try to park it in a secure car park or a well lit area as this could be enough to stop someone trying to break in.  Finally remember to lock the doors and close the windows because failing to do this is leaving it completely insecure.

These are being dealt with by your neighbourhood policing team in partnership with residents and other agencies. Progress will be reported in the Neighbourhood updates.
