E-Cops - Weekly Update 10-DEC-2011

Since our last weekly update, there have been two reported crimes within the Bar Hill / Dry Drayton / Boxworth & Lolworth areas. I'm sorry to say that one of those was the robbery at Bar Hill Post Office on Monday 5th December. I am aware that an ecops message has already been sent out regarding the robbery, but I would like to remind you to call in on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111 if you can provide any information that may assist us in bringing the offenders to justice. The Neighbourhood Policing Team has been tasked to carry out patrols outside our Post Offices to reassure and to deter any criminal activity. These patrols are likely to continue over the festive period.

Today, there has been a report of a dwelling burglary in Foxhollow, Bar Hill. It appears that the rear doors of the property have been forced open for the offender(s) to gain entry. Although there are signs that the property has been searched through, it is not yet known what, if anything has been taken.

Local villages are still being targeted for dwelling burglaries, and in the main, jewellery and cash is what the offenders are looking for. Instruments found in rear gardens are being used to jemmy doors and windows open for entry to be gained. Please remember to lock away any items that offenders could potentially use to assist them in gaining entry to your property. If you would like any further crime prevention advice on home / garden security, please contact us by calling 101 or by replying to this email and we will be happy to assist. Our dedicated patrols are continuing as per one of our current panel priorities.

Finally, on Wednesday 7th December, we conducted some speed checks along Scotland Road, Dry Drayton. The checks were conducted within the 40mph speed limit area. I am pleased to say that during our checks, no vehicles were found to be travelling in excess of the speed limit.

Kind regards
PC Claire Reeves and PCSO Bujar Mani
