Dear Residents

Please find below the crime record for the period from 1st March to 16th March.

Things were generally going very well until Thursday & Friday when there were a couple of burglaries and a theft from a motor vehicle. It looks like Shortlands may have been targeted for a couple of days.

Despite current circumstances, Officers will still be out and about patrolling.  We’ll be visiting food shops regularly to ensure that they have no problems with panic buying.  Home visits unfortunately can’t be carried out at the moment but please ‘phone or email if you need us and we’ll do our best to help you.

Take care and let’s hope things don’t take too long to return to normal.

Thanks as always for your help & support.

Kind Regards
