Instant Alerts

20/05/2019 - We have been asked to get in touch with you regarding the current spike in burglaries in the area. Some of you may be aware that there has been a worrying upward trend in burglaries over the last month. They have a similar modus operandii with burglars 'garden hopping' late at night or in the early hours (1.00 am and 5.00 am). They often use tools taken from insecure sheds. The police are undertaking additional patrols in our area. In the last week they have deployed helicopters and police dogs in pursuit of suspects. They urge everyone to help their inquiries by doing the following:
A- if you hear a helicopter hovering overhead please DO NOT go out into your garden or the street to see what is going on. This is seriously hampering operations that rely on a helicopter tracking someone at a time when normally there are very few residents outside.
B- please do not interfere or approach a working police dog. This again is seriously hampering the police at work.
We all want to apprehend these villains and complying with a) and b) above will be a great help to the police.
Can you please spread the word on this to all your friends, neighbours or through your networks so we can really support the police in protecting. us. Thank you for our co-operation.
