Dear Resident

Good Afternoon.

This is a reminder about using 999, as you can see below, we had an Attempted Burglary last week. The victim called 999 first, but because of a recorded message on the line, before reaching an operator, hung up, and called 101 to report it.

If a burglary is happening, just happened, or you suspect it is happening then call 999 straight away. This will get a quicker response, and ensure that little or no forensic opportunity is lost. This will aid the investigation, and allow Police to compare fingerprints and/or DNA found at the scene with those already on the system. Thereby increasing the chance of a conviction.

This week’s Community Engagement this week – Street Briefing – Wednesday 23/01/2019 1100-1200 hours, Stanhope Road at the junction with The Avenue and the Fairfield Path.

Hope to see you when we are out and about.
