Clifton Neighbourhood Watch – June 2018

At the time of writing there have been no reported crimes since the numerous thefts from vehicles last month. The police have asked everyone in the village not to leave their cars unlocked when unattended, even for a short period of time. It is very easy for a criminal to walk around the village checking car doors until he finds one that is open and then he can help himself to anything that is in it. The same goes for open garage doors.

Those of you that signed up for the police Community Messaging Service will have received eMails from the police advising you of current police activity, scams, fraudulent activity etc. To join this service go to; https://www.warwickshire.police.uk/cms The police have been using their HGV spotter vehicle to identify driving offences. There has been an increase in criminal activity using texts and eMails. Criminals have been active in the area offering a drive/block paving cleaning service quoting £100, but once they have started the work the cost trebles and they will not back down, they are persistent and aggressive; don’t ask callers to do the work, find a professional.

Please remember the MOBILE POLICE STATION is available for you in Lilbourne Rd. from 11.00am to 12.00 noon on the dates displayed on the village notice boards.

All households in the village are covered by Clifton NHW so there is no need to apply for membership. However, if you would like to know more or take an active part in Clifton NHW please contact Chairman David Glover on 01788 535574 djglover1951@gmail.com
