NHW Newsletter August 2011

Neighbourhood Watch Newsletter - Kisle News August 2011

Village news - At a recent meeting with our Community Police Officer I learned that Crime in our Village for the period of 1st April to 31st July this year compared to last year is around 50% down in cases of Crimes as well as cases of Nuisance incidents. I would like to think that all the NHW team has played a part in this result. We need to continue to keep up our vigilance in order to prevent it getting worse. There are still streets which do not have Street Representatives (Millers Close, Ashby Close, and Bugbrooke Road) and in my mind these street are more vulnerable as there is no obvious NHW presence. Please contact me (telephone number and email address below) if you wish to volunteer to be the Street Representative for your street. This is not hard work, but it does help to make your neighbourhood more secure.

Our first Street Meeting with the Police (the new way the Police will interact with the Community) was held on July 15 at 6:00 p.m. at the Car Park near the Toddler Play Area of the Playing Fields. The focus was on Anti-Social Behaviour and the Streets targeted were Hall Close, Beech Lane, The Green, and High Street. About a dozen villagers turned up to have a general discussion and then had the opportunity to discuss more individual matters with the Police Officers who were present. I will let you know when the next meeting is planned.

Please remember to be careful about leaving Doors and Windows open. It only takes seconds for a thief to enter a house, snatch valuables, and be out again, if the windows and doors are not locked. Keep your valuables, house keys, and car keys out of sight of Windows or Letter Flaps as it is easy to "fish" them out. Please also remember that even if a Caller to a house appears to be genuine the Police still want to check them. Please call me or the Police on the number shown below to report anyone calling on you without an appointment.
