Woodston/Fletton Burglary Dwelling Series.
There have been several recent Burglaries in the last 7 days. The Burglaries are often overnight through insecure doors or windows. The Dwellings targeted seem to be on the corners of blocks and can be accessed through alley ways.
I have tasked my PCSO colleagues out over the last week to knock on the doors of premises were there is an insecure door or window.
The officers will be giving out crime prevention literature and making referrals to our crime prevention officer Helen O’Driscoll. Officers will be encouraging residents to sign up for E-Cops so we can continue to keep you updated with any crime patterns.
I have tasked the Constables and Sergeants to carry out both High visibility and covert patrols overnight on foot or cycle, and also check for insecurities. This is supported by a lot of intelligence work by the offender management team who are targeting local known offenders.
Now that the winter months are with us, criminals in our area take advantage of the dark nights for crimes such as theft from motor vehicles, and Burglary.
Please help us reduce the opportunities for these individuals by securing your homes and installing tactical measures such as drive way alarms. Locking doors and windows, and installing one working PIR light to the rear of your property.
Christmas is fast approaching ( yes I know far too quickly) vehicle crime spikes this time of year because thieves target cars with property on show. On a recent walk around your area, 16 vehicles were found to be insecure by my officers. Please remove your belongings from your car and lock it up.
Your area remains a low crime area and we want to reduce further still., and with your continued vigilance we will deny criminals the easy opportunities.
Many thanks for reading.
