E-Cops - Merry Christmas And A Very Happy New Year!

You will pleased to know that there has been no crime in your area for the past week.

I have continued with dedicated hi visibility patrols mainly in Girton, Dry Drayton and Bar Hill.

At the same date as above I carried out speed checks in Saxon Way, Bar Hill, as a result one motorist was seen travelling in excess of the speed limit, this motorist has been spoken with.

Crime prevention advice:

Home security, thieves will know that houses may contain more goodies this time of year, please be aware of this and make sure your security is up to date to keep these people out. Where ever possible please mark valuable items with a UV pen or visit Immobilise - which is a nationwide secure database system that allows you to protect your property by registering on-line any valuables that have a unique serial number such as mobile phones, laptops, ipods, bicycles, and cameras. Immobilise is searchable by police forces all over the country and will help reduce property crime and reunite owners with their property.

Shopping, how many of you will do a shop, take the stuff back to the car and go off to do a bit more shopping? Thieves are on the look out for these type of shoppers so please think before you leave your shopping unattended in your car.

Shopping trips, if you are off to another town for your shopping and need a sat nav please remove all trace from the window and car. ie the ring left by the holder, the holder and most of all the sat nav itself.

Please be aware when defrosting your vehicle, do not leave your vehicle unattended whilst defrosting it, vehicles have been stolen this way!

If you wish to report any other crime, suspicious behaviour or activity please ring our new non-emergency number 101. If you believe that a crime is in progress please ring 999. I also welcome anyone to contact me on if you wish to let me know of any issues you may be experiencing.

I will now be on annual leave after today and will return back on 9th January 2012, in my absence Histon Team will be looking after my beat area.

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2012.
