Metting on Monday

Alert message sent 06/04/2022 10:24:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

Dear Coordinators and Deputies
Firstly, very many thanks to everyone who managed to get to our Zoom meeting on Monday evening. It was great to have people from right across the LPA joining us to hear from our Police Commander, Supt. Emma Burroughs. It was clear to everyone how supportive she is of Neighbourhood Watch, and the contributions that you all make.

For those who missed the meeting, there is now the opportunity to see the video recording. As the meeting lasted just over an hour, it is a large file, so I have set up a link HERE. If you have a problem using the link, just let me know.

I showed a number of useful 'url' addresses in my own presentation, so I have attached my slides as that's easier than going through the video!

Two other things that came out of the discussions at the meeting:
1) Domestic Abuse 
A discreet App for mobile phones has been developed that is aimed at enabling victims of domestic abuse (or their friends) to report their problems more easily. It is called Bright Sky, and it is available from the usual sources. Please pass on this information wherever you think it may be of value. Please keep in mind that this is a 'hidden' crime that is prevalent in most parts of the country, even if it is normally out of sight.

2) Catalytic Converter theft:
The following tips from the AA are designed to minimise risk of this type of theft:
Garage your car whenever possible
Avoid badly lit areas when parking
Be suspicious if you see people working under cars - and report incidents on 101 when appropriate - but do not approach those involved.
If you know your model if particularly at risk (especially vehicles with high ground clearance) consider a marking or security device.
I also repeat for those unable to be at the meeting that I have stocks of road signs, window stickers and No Cold Calling stickers, as well as 'simply Safer' leaflets to distribute to neighbouring roads that do not have a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme. you and your members are safer if you have other Schemes around you, so please consider dropping some off where appropriate while exercising or walking the dog!

Many thanks
