Local news

We begin 2021 with a sense of renewed optimism looking forward to the year ahead and the opportunities it may present. We remain very aware of the impact that the current Covid-19 public health emergency is placing on individuals, families and our communities as a whole across University ward area. With the ever changing situation, we remain resolute in our commitment, effort and energy, continuing to plan and work with community groups and our partners across the Public Sector, to reduce the impact of Covid-19 on our local communities and to keep you all safe. In University Ward the vast majority of you have been doing what’s right for a long time, following the government guidelines to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus and keeping one another safe. We continue to use the 4E’s approach to policing Covid-19; engage, explain, encourage and finally enforce the regulations where applicable. You may have seen on our social media channels and in the local media that in recent weeks we have seen an increase in house parties and larger gatherings. Where there have been clear breaches of the regulations we have taken proportionate and necessary action, issuing appropriate fines to individuals. As vaccination roll out continues across health care settings in (area/s) you will see your local officers in attendance, providing reassurance around key vaccination sites. Regardless of Covid 19, our policing focus remains to protect the most vulnerable, keep people safe and to respond to serious crime. Our neighbourhood policing activity will continue to be focused on maintaining our core operational duties and delivering our Neighbourhood Policing Strategy. The provision of highly visible and locally connected neighbourhood policing teams remain the foundation of our force operating model.

Recent Burglaries on ward area

There have been 2 reported burglaries within the last week on a neighbouring ward area the area. Enquiries are ongoing to try and identify offenders. 

 Remember to keep your own property secure to reduce the opportunity for thieves. Whenever possible lock your doors and windows in unoccupied rooms even if you are in the house.

Please be reminded to lock your doors and to keep any security gates closed and locked at all timesWe also advise residents not to leave high value items on display as they may entice thieves.

To assist us in identifying stolen property please consider property marking high value items using Smartwater or UV pens.  You are also advised to register property at www.immobilise.com which is a free on-line property register used by police forces nationwide to reunite stolen goods to their owners. All you have to do is register on-line and then upload properties electrical items serial numbers.

Crime Prevention Advice:

  • Keep all the doors and windows locked.
  • Make your property appear occupied, even when you are out. You could use timers to turn on lights and have blinds set to prevent seeing inside, which may confirm a house is unoccupied.
  • If an offender approaches your house, make sure nothing blocks the view of them, such as garden hedges or trees and make sure the area is well lit so they are easily noticed.
  • Keep valuables in the home out of general view from the opportunist burglar. They may look through windows when deciding if the home contains property they consider worth stealing. Use blinds, nets or other window coverings to prevent this.
  • Fit a burglar alarm with visible, deterrent bell boxes front and rear and keep the system maintained.

There have been an increase in calls for service recently regarding anti social behaviour on the playing fields that seem to involve groups of youths.

We are working closely with partner agencies to try and tackle this issue and patrols will be increased in the area. If you witness any ASB whilst in the park please report this via 101.

 

SCAMMERS

Heres some advice on how you can access support and safeguard yourself against scams during the coronavirus outbreak.

Unfortunately not everyone out there is trustworthy and some people will try to take advantage of this unusual situation our society is facing and try to exploit people.

Listed below are some of the scams that you could be approached with, but please note that criminals and their scams come in all shapes and sizes, and they may contact you at the door, by phone, post or online:

  • Be aware of people offering miracle cures or vaccines for coronavirus – there is no specific treatment for coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • People impersonating healthcare workers, claiming to be offering ‘home-testing’ for coronavirus – this is a scam and these kits are not currently available to buy
  • Emails saying that you can get a refund on taxes, utilities or similar - they are usually bogus and they are just trying to obtain your bank and personal details
  • Fake products available to buy online that advise they can protect you or cure coronavirus - these will not help and are just designed to take your money
  • Mobile phone applications that claim to give you updates on the virus but instead, they lock your phone and demand a ransom
  • Calls from people purporting to be from your bank, or from the police, asking for your bank details over the phone
  • People offering to do you’re shopping or collecting medication and asking for money upfront and then disappearing

To avoid becoming a victim of a scam,  please follow our tips and advice below:

  • Be cautious and listen to your instincts. Don’t be afraid to hang up, bin it, delete it or shut the door
  • Take your time; don’t be rushed
  • If someone claims to represent a charity, ask them for ID. Be suspicious of requests for money up front. Check with family and friends before accepting offers of helps if you are unsure
  • If you are online, be aware of fake news and use trusted sources such as .gov.uk or NHS.uk websites. Make sure you type the addresses in and don’t click on links in emails
  • Only purchase goods from legitimate retailers and take a moment to think before parting with money or personal information
  • Know who you’re dealing with - if you need help, talk to someone you know or get in touch with your local Council on the numbers below
  • Protect your financial information, especially from people you don’t know. Never give your bank card or PIN to a stranger

We know it can be difficult to know who to trust, and we hope this information helps you to feel more informed and more able to protect yourself against these types of scams.
