Local Crime Update 31/08/2021

Dear Residents

Please find below the crime record for the period from 16th Aug to 31st Aug 2021.

Good to see the crime rate remains low.  Remember to make sure your shed and/or garage is secure even if you don’t have anything particularly expensive in it. As shown in report below, tools can be taken from sheds and garage used to assist entry into your home.

Other than that, I don’t have any more to say re crime on this bulletin.

Now that term’s started, I’m looking forward to visiting schools at the start or finish of the day depending on my shift.

Our next drop-in surgery is at Shortlands Library, Shortlands Road on Friday 10th Sept, from 3.30 to 4.30 pm.  Please feel free to pop along.

Hoping to make some of the Wednesday coffee mornings at the church later this month.

Thanks very much as always for your help and support.   Take care.

Kind Regards
