Good morning readers,
For those of you that have not seen my blog before, this is where I tell where I have been and what I have been up within your area over the last month. It may seem that I have not mentioned your particular area or village, which does not mean that I have not visited or taken you into account, it means that you have been able to live in relative peace and quiet for the last month in terms of crime and Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB)
I have to say, you guys live in the most beautiful part of the County and it is always lovely to patrol your villages. I have been steadily getting to know your farmers and residents and I hope I have been a reassuring presence.
At the beginning of this month, there was a theft of brand new tyres and brake pads on RAF Alconbury, stolen from new Audis’ parked on the site for Vindis Motors. If you have any information, or have been offered brand new tyres or brake pads at a discounted rate, please get in touch by calling 101 or Crimestoppers.
Also on RAF Alconbury, there have been a total of 4 caravans stolen from the sales room amounting to thousands of pounds. We are asking for any information, no matter how insignificant you think it is with regards these thefts. Please call 101.
The battery thieves have been at it again at Alconbury Recycling Centre, causing criminal damage by breaking into the yard in order to access them. Again, if you have any information with regards these offences, please report it.
I have been called to several vehicle nuisances within the village of Alconbury in the last few weeks, with it mainly being over parking too close to dropped kerbs. May I please remind drivers, it is your responsibility to park safely and sensibly and to not block other residents in their drive. It is an offence to cause an obstruction and you could get a fine if you park in such a manner.
I had a wonderful visit with the children at Alconbury Primary School last week and would like to thank all involved – surely a job shouldn't’t be so much fun! I hope they all enjoyed it as much as I did. They all coped remarkably with the sirens and lights and it was so good to hear how many now wanted to be Police Officers when they grow up.
With the weather now changing into rain, I would ask for common sense when driving through Alconbury Weston on the Hamerton Road. It floods every year, so please reduce your speed, especially if we have a lot of rain. The same for Alconbury over the Bridge, please drive safely.
Stats – 4 reports of suspicious activity; 2 reports of poaching; 4 neighbour disputes; 3 vehicle nuisances and 3 causes for concern/missing.
Many thanks for your continued support, Be safe out there.
