Neighbourhood Alert message feed

Hi all, ​I am just writing to inform that today we slipped some leaflets through the doors on certain roads in an effort to step up the frequency in which we report activity in regards to drug based crime.  I thought I'd post on here, as it seems like a more efficient way of pushing the incentive.  If you see any suspicious activity, do not hesitate to get in contact with me. Thank you ​PCSO Alex Smith

Dear NHW Co-ordinators   Back by popular demand, here is your fortnightly update. This update will continue to coincide with a meeting we hold every fortnight to understand crime trends, demands and emerging issues.   Today we discussed the continuing issues with vehicle crime, there are two main trends currently affecting the whole of Huntingdonshire:   Theft from cars, these are mainly affecting residential addresses and are straight forward thefts of items such as Sat- Navs, hand bags and lap tops. We have seen trends over isolated times, over night, lasting around an hour where offenders have made their way through a village. We have no particular warning about these events, and they do not appear to be part of a trend that we can predict. Continued messaging is required around simple prevention measures. I hope that our new volunteers will help by talking to victims and asking if they will share their stories on social media. Most people believe it won’t happen to them, so we want to increase people’s awareness of the issue. We've seen a big increase in thefts from lorries parking up for the night around the A14 and A1. This crime type is only affecting commercial victims currently, but does attract criminals to our area as cargo is a lucrative target. The current A14 upgrade work has closed some parking in surrounding areas, increasing the amount of lorries parking up in Huntingdonshire. We have ongoing prevention work to target the lay-bys most commonly affected, however again there is no specific trends for us to target.     Operation Sceptre is the national knife crime prevention event which will run from 1st - 6th May. We have seen some increases in edged weapons being used in crimes across the area, mostly these incidents are linked to drug related crime. The operation will (as in previous years) target those who we believe are most likely to be carrying weapons. There will also be some test purchasing to ensure shops don’t sell blades to underage people, and continued night time economy patrols to prevent alcohol related violence.   Hot spots of note:     We saw a sharp spike in theft from vehicles and non-dwelling burglary in Great Gransden. There has been a great deal of work carried out this last week to link the various pieces of local community intelligence to help with the investigation. There has also been increased patrol work in the area both covert and high visibility. There is an increased need for vigilance. What we have learned this week is that there is a lot of community intelligence that is being posted on social media which is not being given direct to Police. We can, and do spot useful information on websites, but it’s far more effective to have it reported immediately and directly. We’ve had twelve shoplifting offences reported in two weeks in St Neots town centre. This is sadly a move away from the excellent reductions we've had over the last six months. Earith and Needingworth have suffered from increased home burglaries over the last two weeks. As such a targeted reduction plan led by Sgt Andy Street has been put in place. Sgt Street is attending the parish meeting this evening if you would like to go and talk to him direct. Hemingford Grey, we've been acting on reports of rogue traders in the area operating from two different vans and posing as legitimate businesses.     What we need to know     Asian Gold thefts. Over the county burglary specifically to target Asian families for gold jewellery as emerged again. Can you please talk to people in your Asian communities, please warn them that they need to ensure jewellery is safely stored. We believe that in some cases the offenders may be working nationally, phoning people before to establish their ethnicity. More advice can be found by visiting our website. Water board scam burglaries. As we move into warmer months, distraction burglaries are likely to increase. Please continue to talk to the elderly and make it clear that the water board will not visit unannounced. Online intelligence, if you do see information posted on social media which you think might be helpful please encourage people to report directly to us so we can act. A good example is Great Gransden where vital information was posted online but not reported.   If you are not getting updates from your local team please get in contact with your local Sergeant. We do have a specific agreement as to what we will put out alerts for, and sometimes it’s not always possible. There have however been some admin issues unreported recently that we’ve been able to rectify, so please let us know by contacting us directly:  Sergeant Andy Street - St Ives area  Andrew.Street@cambs.pnn.police.uk Sergeant Rebecca Jones - Becky.Jones@cambs.pnn.police.uk Sergeant Emma Garwood - St Neots area Emma.Garwood@cambs.pnn.police.uk    Volunteers   Since my previous email I've had two volunteers come forward, thank you, I’m looking forward to meeting with them soon. If you are interested please let me know.   Finally, below is a list of the most current home burglaries from the last 14 days.        Insp Paul Rogerson Huntingdonshire Area Operations and Communities Manager Mobile: 07850 128791 |Call: 101   #HuntingdonshireTogether …together we can!   SECTOR Location Town/ Village PROPERTY METHOD   MO Huntingdon Morborne Hill Morborne Nothing Stolen Window - Rear (Ground) Forced - Unspecified Daylight offence.

As a county we are required to keep accurate and up to date records of our Coordinators and NHW Schemes and I would appreciate your assistance to maintain our records.    Our records show that you are an ‘approved’ coordinator who is not currently aligned to a scheme. It may be that you manage a scheme but our records are simply out of date.   As I am sure you are aware the role of a coordinator is to act as the key contact point for a scheme and to liaise with the police and other scheme members. A scheme may have more than one coordinator as long as members and police know who the key contacts are.   I would be grateful if you could let me know if you are still acting as a Coordinator and if so, what scheme you coordinate. I can then work with you to keep our records up to date. Please reply using the ‘Reply’ button below.      Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.     Kind regards   Jess Sadek  Police Service Volunteer Cambs.
