Update

There were numerous beach hut burglaries during the night of 10th into 11th July 2014 - anyone with any information regarding these crimes is asked to contact PC 2764 Abrahams at Harwich on 101 extension 445145.

There has been a reduction in the number of dwelling burglaries in the Harwich area recently. Residents are urged to remain vigilant to help prevent further burglaries in the area. Certain individuals are still being targetted by both uniformed and covert officers.

Some extra thought should be given to ensure security is tight, with doors and windows secured, alarms set if available and security lighting is fully operational. External, movement activated lighting is extremely effective in deterring burglars.

Please report anybody seen acting suspiciously especially during daylight entering back gardens or paying undue attention to properties.

Another issue which we are keen to keep a lid on is that of 'rogue traders' - e.g. where workmen offer to carry out work for you (which sometimes is not even necessary), fail to complete the work satisfactorily and make demands for money above the original amount quoted for the work.

Please see the attached information to assist you in avoiding being targeted by Rogue Traders and becoming a victim of crime, the ‘Buy with confidence’ scheme run by Trading standards is summarised below.

'Buy with Confidence' is an approved trader scheme which has been set up to assist residents to find reputable local businesses.

Businesses are audited by Trading Standards to ensure they comply with consumer protection legislation and only once they pass can they display the Buy with Confidence logo and be entered onto the website.

Approved businesses are monitored on a regular basis and feedback is invited from their customers. If member companies fall below acceptable standards, they may be expelled from the scheme.

The scheme also allows for an arbitration service in instances where the business and the consumers cannot achieve a satisfactory resolution.

Please use the link below to gain access to the search facility for approved Traders in your area:-
http://www.buywithconfidence.gov.uk/sitepages/bwchome.aspx

The team here welcome any calls or information from members of the public to allow us to tackle any other issues of anti-social behaviour or crime that they might be experiencing.

BICYCLE THEFTS are all too common. These are being taken, in the main, from outside of shops and from front gardens. In a majority of cases bicycles have been left insecure which presents an easy target for opportunist thieves. Always secure your bicycle or take it indoors even if you are only going to be leaving it unattended for a short period of time.

If you have ANY INFORMATION concerning any type of criminal or anti social activity then please let us know. Without this valuable information it makes it very difficult for the police to bring offenders to justice. Any information you do pass to the police will be dealt with in strict confidence and can also be done anonymously.

As always if you would like advice on any matters, such as crime prevention, then please do not hesitate to call.

If you would like to join or start one of our many Neighbourhood Watch schemes, then please contact us and we will send you an information pack. Help us to make our community a safer place to be - start up a watch today.

Finally, and as always, if there is anything at all that you wish to discuss then please do not hesitate to contact us here.
 
 

You can take action in a number of ways to help make your neighbourhood a safer place to live, work and visit.
