Crime report from our DWPCSO Adam Charles

Dear Residents


Please find below the crime record for the period 16.7.18 to 31.7.18. 

Unfortunately we haven’t had the best of fortnights. 

We had a bad end to the month with two burglaries and a cat killing.  We’ve carried out detailed enquiries into all three offences and kept victims informed ensuring they’ve been updated as much as possible and given the necessary reference and contact numbers. 

A neighbour of one of the victims did contact us re a suspicious male who had knocked on her door around the time of the Hayes Lane burglary for which we are very grateful. 

Overall our crime figures remain low and your contacts re suspicious behaviour plays a massive part in this. 


On a lighter note I hope you’re all enjoying the nice weather.  A big thank you to everyone whose kept me hydrated with tea, squash and water. 

Stay vigilant and feel free to contact us re any concerns.  Take care.


Kind Regards
