As part of our ongoing drive to reduce demand did you know that you can report a "NONE EMERGENCY" crime and find lots of useful information on our new improved web

As for Burglaries we like to remind you the usual MO is entry via forcing rear garden doors or windows as these areas are isolated and out of sight. Please make sure all doors are locked whether you're in or not, windows are locked and secure and look at your security measures on any lockups, garages, sheds or outbuilding. If you can make it difficult for anyone to get into the rear garden even better as this is the preferred point of entry for burglars. Preferred items for them to steal is Jewellery and cash so please keep these safe.

As for other vehicle crime, please continue to remove all property – remember 'if you leave it on show it will go'. Look to park your vehicle in a well-lit area, look to manoeuvre your van to make it difficult to open any side or rear doors. Please remember when you park up the perpetrators could be watching you, so remove your valuables out of site prior to arrival.

We will continue to work closely with the local residents and will alert you as soon as crime is reported and ask that if anything suspicious is seen to report through either 999 or 101.

    Dear EWPC

    We are delighted to announce that the August 2020 OurNews is now available to view and download from our website.( )

    This month's theme is Crime Prevention and we have highlighted our launch of our new "Safety In Neighbours"campaign, which launched at the tail end of July. This has been a great campaign and we have received lots of positive feedback.

    As well as continuing our theme across the newsletter, we are excited to launch our first ever Impact Survey, which we are pleased to say we have received over 21,000 responses. We would like to congratulate West Midlands and Hampshire, which we have received the most responses from their members and members of the public.

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank those that have already completed the survey and for those of that haven't, we ask you to fill in the survey and ask others to do the same.

    Please continue to share our newsletter with your coordinators, members, supporters, and partners across your networks.

    Best wishes
