|Insp. Andrew Bartlett Peterborough - Southern|
I am publishing this update with regards to Operation Atmosphere, you might remember the operation is about police officers carrying out high visibility patrols in your area, checking insecure premises and vehicles and signing up new members to eCops.
The operation has being going very well and we have received some very positive feedback from you. A little disappointing that we have found so many unlocked vehicles overnight, and indeed a large number of open sheds and windows at the rear of premises.
However we have on each occasion spoken to the owner/occupier to let them know.
A quick tactical update as a result of the patrols, PC Andy Bridge spotted a male leaving a house on London Rd, Woodston and gave chase. The male was caught and found in possession of goods from the house.
The male is a local man by the name of Chris Burden born 1985, has been charged and is appearing in Court this morning.
This is a great result for the community and an excellent piece of team work by the Safer Neighbourhood team and DS Taylor's burglary squad.
We will be working with his housing provider to remove his tenancy under the Crime and Disorder Act. The Safer Peterborough partnership has made it's position clear if offenders harm our community we will seek possession of their property.
