Local Crime Update 15/03/2021

Dear Residents

Please find below the crime record for the period from 1st March to 15th March.

Very pleasing to see no burglaries.

Unfortunately, a cat was recently shot with an air rifle but fortunately the vet was able to remove the pellets and the cat made a good recovery.  If you have concerns about any use of firearms in the area please contact us by email to the SNMailbox shown below or by other appropriate means depending on whether something is happening or if you have information that may be of interest to police from a previous incident.

Overall the Ward remains very safe.

Hope to see some of you while out and about on patrol during the next few days.  Keep up the good social distancing and hopefully things will continue heading in the right direction.  For those of you who have children or grandchildren at school I hope they’ve settled back in well.  Thanks as always for your help & support.  Take care.

Kind Regards
