E-Cops: Report Suspicious Activity Online


For the first time you can report suspicious activity online.

The facility is part of Operation Twist, the crackdown on rural burglaries in Huntingdonshire and South Cambs.

People can report suspicious activity in the two districts through the force website or via email.

Offenders will often visit an area in the days leading up to a burglary to scope out potential targets. It's at this point that people are most likely to notice something unusual but may not think it is worth reporting. We want descriptions of these people and any vehicle details that may be linked to them.

We appreciate that not everyone may want to phone through with this type of information and hope the online facility will provide an effective way of doing this.

However if people suspect there is a burglary in process then they should always dial 999.

To report suspicious activity or information about burglary visit the 'Operation Twist' page of the force website - www.cambs.police.uk. Or email - burglarycrackdown@cambs.pnn.police.uk

Patrols continue to be increased in rural villages, as well as investigative and forensic work to target those responsible.

Anyone with information should use the online facility or call police on 101. Or contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Kind regards
