Car crime alert

Keep your car and its belongings safe!

Over the last week, residents have noticed break-ins to cars on Davies Lane. Youths have also been seen looking into vehicles.

In order to deter criminals, don’t leave valuables on show. This includes removing the front panel from your stereo, and if you have sat-nav you should also remove the sucker, and ensure there is no sucker mark on your windscreen. Keep your car locked, even if you are just leaving it for a minute. Display a “no valuables inside” sign.

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer a break-in, always report it to the police. This is important so that they can be aware of hot-spots and allocate their resources to target problem areas.

To report a crime (after the event) or for more information, call the Cann Hall Safer Neighbourhoods Team on 020 8721 2036.

If you see a crime in progress, call 999 immediately.

If you would like leaflets from the police on vehicle crime – including bike or caravan – please contact Flash Bristow at 1 Davies Lane on flash@gorge.org or 07939 579090.
