We can help- Crime Prevention Day 2018

Next week on Wednesday 21st of Feb,  Cambridgeshire Police is going to be holding it’s biggest ever one-day crime prevention day.  For 24 hours we are going to be holding crime prevention events and initiatives across the county.  As part of this we are offering Cambridgeshire residents the chance to have a comprehensive shed-security survey carried out.

Shed breaks are unfortunately very common in Cambridgeshire but thieves can be deterred with some simple and low cost techniques.  If you would like one of our officers to visit you on the 21st to carry out a security survey of your shed you can book your visit here: http://tinyurl.com/shedsurvey

Neighbourhood Watch helps people work together to create communities where everyone feels ‘safe’.

Neighbourhood Watch is about making sure that no-one has to feel afraid, vulnerable or isolated in the place where they live.

NHW has been in existence in this area for over 20 years, but over recent years, interest declined. As a Group, we made a determined effort to raise awareness, and successfully recruited new members and most importantly, new Coordinators..

Bi monthly meetings are now held in the Parish Hall, Wimblington and hopefully, if we can get more volunteers from Doddington, we will alternate meetings between the two villages again.

The PCSO for Doddington – Carol Holloway, regularly patrols our villages with special interest in the School Crossings and parking.
