July 2017


From DWO PCSO Adam Charles:

To all Shortlands Residents:

Dear Residents
Please see the crime record for the period to 31 July 2017 below. 
A slight rise in offences compared to previous fortnights. 
The majority occurred during one overnight period in Park Langley. 
A little bit of advice re the theft other offence near in Shortlands Road.  If you put your bag down next to you make sure you keep an eye on it.  I appreciate that it's easy to lose yourself in a book, newspaper or phone while waiting for public transport but don't become totally oblivious to your surroundings and what's happening around you. 
Please keep in contact via the appropriate communication regarding anything we need to know about and/or deal with.  We had a very good run of no burglaries prior to this fortnight.  Let's hope we see similar results over the next few weeks. 
Hope to see some of you at the meeting on Thursday.

Thanks & Kind Regards
