Contact Your Team

There are plenty of opportunities for you to meet your local officers and talk to them about problems you're worried about. You can pop along to Police Surgeries, which are informal drop-in sessions at well visited places in the community. It's a chance to meet your local officers, tell them about crime and antisocial behaviour in your area and get crime prevention advice.

You can also have a say in what your local police and other agencies focus on in your area at Priority Setting Meetings. Any member of the community can go along and talk to local officers and PCSO's, council workers and people from Fire and Rescue about issues you face. What you say at these meetings will help the policing teams decide how they should focus their resources in your area. If you think we're getting it right or wrong at the moment, come along and have your say.

There has been a recent increase in insecure dwelling burglaries whereby offenders are trying door handles to properties looking for opportunities to steal from within. There have been a few of these incidents in the area of MORTON ROAD, WENTWORTH ROAD and more recently on the CAMBRIDGE PARK area. The CAMBRIDGE PARK area is a site which contains 85 properties for residents over 65 years of age and although they live independently some of those residents are vulnerable due to age and health issues. 

 We have posted letters (quick comm's) to every property in the above mentioned area warning the residents of the issues and also reminding them to keep their properties locked and secure at all times. We are conducting regular high visibility patrols in those areas and there are also extra patrols from other police departments also. We are engaging with the residents at every opportunity. Our relationship with the residents of Cambridge Park is a very good one anyway and we do attend events at the garden room so we can engage with the residents more closely.

*GOOD NEWS* There has been a dramatic reduction in these offences in the hot-spot area of MORTON ROAD (and surrounding streets) which we believe is linked to the recall to prison of an individual who had links to the area. No reported offences have occurred in this area for over 3 weeks now. We are still conducting high visibility patrols in the area and engaging with residents at every opportunity.

Unfortunately though there has been a further dwelling burglary on CLARE COURT in the CAMBRIDGE PARK AREA which occurred on 15/03/19. This area will remain our top priority for high visibility patrols and engagement with residents.

We are currently experiencing a series of shed and garage burglaries which have been occurring for some time. These offences are generally occurring overnight and the offenders are using physical force to break into the sheds and garages and in some instances the offenders are unscrewing the hinges on shed doors to gain access. Items that are being stolen are high value pedal cycles, power tools and fishing equipment. The majority of these crimes are occurring in the area of YARBOROUGH ROAD and the surrounding streets. 

*UPDATE 19/03/19* These offences have dramatically reduced across the Yarborough Ward with the last reported shed/garage burglary occurring over 3 weeks ago. Patrols have increased as has engagement with local residents in relation to garage and shed security. There have been several D.N.A matches left at the scene of some of the offences which has now led to the identity of an offender for some of these offences. Investigations are ongoing in relation to this.

We have sent tweets and community alerts warning residents of these issues and also requesting residents to ensure that they lock and secure their property as best they possibly can. High visibility patrols have increased in this area and the YARBOROUGH WARD policing team are engaging with residents in these areas to promote crime prevention.

Since the turn of the year there has been a big increase in thefts from motor vehicles, particularly insecure vehicles. Offenders are walking along the street trying car door handles looking for easy opportunities to steal items. It's quite easy to press your fob and think you have locked your vehicle but please double check this as there are so many vehicles left insecure on roadsides and driveways which is making it easy for thieves to access vehicles without leaving any forensic evidence behind. 

These offences are happening across the whole YARBOROUGH WARD but there is a particular hot-spot area of offending in the areas of MORTON ROAD, WENTWORTH ROAD, FAIRFAX ROAD and surrounding streets. We are patrolling these areas when possible and again we engage with residents at every opportunity to promote crime prevention and give reassurance.

There have been some incidents where the offenders have broken into the vehicle by smashing a window and stealing loose change from within. Please do not leave items on display and do not leave any change in your vehicle.

*GOOD NEWS* There has been a dramatic reduction in these offences in the hot-spot area of MORTON ROAD (and surrounding streets) which we believe is linked to the recall to prison of an individual who had links to the area. No reported offences have occurred in this area for over 3 weeks now. We are still conducting high visibility patrols in the area and engaging with residents at every opportunity.
