 I wanted to give you a summary of the reported crimes on the sector for the past seven
to ten days.
We are still getting a number of thefts from vehicles reported and sat navs
still appear to be a target.  Please remove them from your vehicles.


Albert Crescent, Hampton: early hours of this morning.  Property from the
burglary has been found in several gardens.  If you saw or heard anything
then please let police know.

Theft of bicycles

Please lock your bikes at all times even when they are parked in your garden. 
Cheap locks will be cut through in seconds.  It is well worth investing in a chain and D-lock and using both of these to secure the bike.  If you would like advice on how to secure your bicycle properly then please get in touch and I will happy to send you details.

Doorstep crimes

 The force has produced a new guide to assist members of the public affected by doorstep crime (such as rogue traders) and it explains the laws governing these types of crime as well as crime prevention advice and where to go for assistance.  If anyone would like this guide to be emailed to them then please do let me know.

Kind regards

Editorial policy: WE DON'T CENSOR NEWS, we will however come down hard on lawbreakers, all forms of ASB - Anti Social Behaviour, and anyone or group who seek to disturb or disrupt our neighbourhoods and communities, or in anyway abuse, take unfair advantage or financially disadvantage our citizens. We support the Park Farm Neighbourhood Watch and digitally carry the messages from this independent Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.

We are openly but constructively critical of all political parties (actual and sham), pressure groups, overbearing 'jobsworths' and those who seek to waste public funds, abuse public office, ramp up expenses, BUY VOTES and/or engage in any form of directed or robotic voting.

Whilst accepting that many in Public Office perform a valuable service and make a worthwhile contribution, there are others who are frankly rubbish.
