At the time of writing there were 2 crimes in the vicinity of South Road where items were stolen from vehicles on 21st January 2018. More recently several properties in North Rd were burgled, access being gained from the rear of the properties.

The Clifton Community Speed Watch team has been monitoring the speed of traffic though the village. Newton Rd (30 mph section), 100 vehicles checked; one doing 35 mph, another probably exceeding the limit, but details of the vehicle could not be taken.

At a recent meeting of Rugby NHW in the Benn Hall the police said that even minor incidents should be reported to the police on 101 (Emergency to 999) as one small bit of information could link with other reports and give the police the lead they need to make an arrest. They also said there are “Holiday Boxes” available on a loan basis from the police which contain light timers, radio timers, TV lights giving the impression that a TV is on in the house.

Make sure your home is secure and ensure any valuables, including keys, are out of sight. If you are away or out for the night use light, TV, Radio timers to suggest there is someone at home.

Anything left on display is an invitation for a criminal to break in and take it even if it is not valuable. An envelope, empty carrier bag or a sweater are all tempting to a criminal.

When out shopping, in a bar, restaurant etc. keep your valuables out of sight and in a safe location. Look round and see how easy it would be to take someone else’s phone, wallet, keys etc. and make sure yours are out of sight and more secure in a zipped pocket etc.

Make sure your home is secure and ensure any valuables, including keys, are out of sight. If you are away or out for the night use light, TV, Radio timers to suggest there is someone at home.
