Local crime update 15 July

Dear Residents

Hope you’re all well.

Please find below the crime record for the period from 1st July to 15th July. Apart from two small spates of motor vehicle crime we’ve been mostly crime free in Shortlands over the past fortnight.

Remember not to leave valuable items in unattended vehicles as our reports do show that, although suspects may have entered a vehicle, if no valuables are found, of course they won’t steal anything.

Although we’ve had no burglaries recently, neighbouring Wards are starting to show an increase now that people are returning to work and able to go out more.  Remember to double lock your front door when you go out and check all windows and outer doors are properly secured before you leave home.

We’ve recently visited the St Mary’s Church and been outside the local primary schools at the end of the school day, enabling some enjoyable interaction with residents.

Thank you for your continued compliance with social distancing.  It’s made our job a lot easier.

Hope to see some of you out and about soon.

Kind Regards
