Update

Burlgary

Historically, between October and the New Year, we see an increase in burglary offences. Essex Police are committed to seeing this change, and we are currently running Operation which is a proactive approach to dealing with burglary and has been under way since the 1st October. This Operation is aimed at driving a reduction in this offence by being in the right place at the right time, in addition to monitoring offenders.
You too can play a part in helping us to reduce this offence, and we have included below a number of home security points. Please take a few minutes to read the following information as following just a couple of the points raised may prevent you from becoming a victim of burglary.
• Make your home safe and secure by fitting 5 lever mortise locks on all external doors and secure locks on all other doors and windows.
• Install a burglar alarm.
• Lock and secure all windows and doors when you leave your home – take special care with UPVC doors (lift handle and lock door with key).
• Remove keys from locks and place them out of sight.
• Never leave tools or implements outside the property which thieves can use to forcibly enter your home.
• Use automatic light timers/sensors to make your property look occupied and consider leaving a radio on.
• Ensure the perimeter of your property (gates, fences, and hedges) is secure, to prevent access to thieves.
• Avoid leaving car keys on view near windows and doors and secure vehicles in garages or behind gates.
• Photograph and record serial numbers of valuable items (laptops, computer consoles, satellite navigation systems, TV’s etc), use an ultra violet marker pen to security code your property, to assist with later identification.
• Where possible hide smaller valuable items in unusual places where thieves might not look (laundry baskets or food containers). Jewellery is stolen for its metallic value and is rarely recovered.
• Do not leave packaging on view as it may highlight a recent purchase of valuable items, dispose of it carefully.
• Do not advertise that you are away – ask a trusted person to check on your property and remove mail. Cancel milk & newspaper deliveries. Ensure light timers and burglar / fire alarms are working.
Try and give the impression that there is someone at home. Remember CLOSE IT, LOCK IT AND CHECK IT!

Anti-Social Behaviour

The Leigh Policing Team is committed to driving down instances of Anti- Social Behaviour. Dealing effectively with it is an ongoing priority for your Team.

Vulnerable people can be left feeling scared and worried around this time of year because of the nights drawing in so if you are aware of a vulnerable adult in your area then pay them a visit.

Theft

We are still having a few reported incidents of theft from motor vehicles in the area. We are advising residents not to leave any valuables on show in their vehicles. Remove your sat navs and cables from vehicles as these make your vehicle an easy target.
If you witness any suspicious activity please call Essex Police on 999 for an emergency and 101 for anything non-emergency.

Operation Newcastle

This is an operation that we are currently running in conjunction with the Youth Support Services. We attend an address where the children have failed to attend school and are therefore effectively truant. In most cases parents have failed to notify the school that there child is sick however, in some extreme cases of truancy it means that we can then take the child back to school, engage with the parent and the child in order to get them on the right path of education.
