The information given could be the last piece in the puzzle that brings a burglary series to an end.
We’re urging you to report any concerns or suspicions to us, even if you think it might be nothing, as part of a county-wide day of action against burglary today.
The day of action is part of Operation Raptor, the force’s drive to tackle crime and protect the public.
There will be a whole range of prevention work, including door-to-door visits by PCSOs and Special constables, giving out advice/materials, crime prevention stands and high visibility patrols, as well as stop and searches in ‘hot spot’ areas.
Last year there were 411 burglaries in the county in February but we want to reduce that number by making it harder for criminals.
Day of action activity:
Identified ‘hot spots’ will be visited by officers carrying out patrols, and where possible arrests and stop and searches will be conducted.
Home security leaflets and window alarms will be handed out and officers, Specials and PCSOs will speak to residents.
In addition, a crime prevention stand will pop up at Northstowe Primary school, with the aim of highlighting security improvements residents can put in place. Security products will be available for sale at a discounted rate, and there will be advice regarding property registration and coding.
Burglary hardening packs will be delivered to houses in ‘hot spot’ areas most impacted by burglary: nine roads will be visited, including Blinco Road, Marshall Road and roads off Mill Road (Hobart Road and Suez Road).
Peterborough and Fenland
PCSOs will visit ‘hot spots’ in Peterborough city centre, with a focus on rogue trader prevention work in elderly communities. In addition, crime prevention advice will be given out at Cross Keys Homes in Bridge Street.
In March/Wisbech ‘hot spots’ will be patrolled and those suspected of burglary visited by officers.
RG – If you know of any concern area’s within Whittlesey/Villages that may help the Police, then please report it by calling 101 or report on Cambs Police Website.
