As I am sure you are aware, there has been an increase in car crime recently in this area – thank you to all those that have taken the time to report this to us. There are a number of Officers now working on this series of incidents, and every call is vital. I appreciate if you have not lost anything, or have no CCTV, it seems like a waste of your time reporting these incidents – but it is important to us. It builds up a picture of the locations, offences and time frames. It seems that the majority of incidents have been thefts from insecure vehicles – please remember to lock your doors! There have also been a few thefts from garages. Again, these seem to have been from insecurities, so remembering general security is vital. I have a selection of Crime Prevention leaflets, CCTV posters, number plate tamper proof screws etc – please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like anything.
Continue to stay safe and look out for your neighbours. If you want to report a crime go to http://www.sussex.police.uk/ and click on ‘Report’ For any advice or concerns, please email me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org
