From DWO PCSO Adam Charles 19/01/2020

Dear Residents

Hope you are all well and had a good start to 2020. Please find below the crime record for the period from 1st Jan to 15th Jan 2020.

Fortunately there’s been very little crime on the ward for the first two weeks of the year and the boys on bikes haven’t been around lately. It’s particularly pleasing to see that only one theft from motor vehicle offence occurred as sometimes we have had considerably more over a fortnight.

Remain vigilant and let’s hope the low crime rate continues into the year.

if anyone fancies popping down for a chat, the remaining two January surgeries will both be held at Costa Coffee, Westmoreland Road. Dates and times as follows:

  • Wednesday 22/01/2020 12pm – 1pm
  • Thursday 30/01/2020 10am – 11am

Thanks as always for your help and support.

Kind regards
