Local priorities

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

  1. Burglary dwelling - We have seen an increase of burglaries in houses over the past month with several offences which have mainly been around the Wing and Stewkley areas, these have mostly been in late afternoons. Please report any suspicious activity, and look out for your neighbours if you know that they are out at work in the day.Please keep doors and windows locked, and keep items of value out of view. Fit security lighting and check that it is working if you already have it. Consider fitting CCTV.
  2. Burglary Non Dwelling - We have recently had an increase in offences where offenders have targeted rural buildings such as barns and locked containers. They have also targeted sheds. These have mainly been overnight in the Wing, Mentmore and Cheddington areas. Please make sure that units have been locked. If possible make sure that security lighting and CCTV are fitted as deterrents, if the quality is good it will help us arrest and convict offenders. Please report any suspicious activity on 999 or 101.
  3. Theft from motor vehicle (TFMV) - There again has been a rise in thefts from vans and work vehicles, with tools being the target of thieves. These have mainly been around the Edlesborough, Stewkley and Cheddington areas. Please try to park your vehicle in a well lit area, and if you can park your rear door up against a wall or post. Try to remove any tools and items of value from your vehicle overnight.

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.
