And Finally… Do You Know About “What 3 Words”?
As part of #KnowExactlyWhere week, the police and other emergency services are urging the public to download the “What 3 Words” app to their mobile devices.
“What 3 Words” is a geo-location system that allows any point on the surface of the earth to be identified by a unique combination of 3 words, precise to three metres.
Using the system, if you ever need to call on the Emergency Services when you are out and about, you can give them the unique 3-word code for your location and they will immediately be able to find exactly where you are and get assistance to you quickly.
Please be aware that these reports do not contain all details of all reported crime. We do not publish details of domestic related offences or anything which may put a person at risk if information regarding the crime was made public.
As always, if you have information relating to any offence, or are concerned about any suspicious activities, please contact police by using any of these methods:
the '101' non-emergency telephone number;
the on-line web-chat tool on the new Cambridgeshire Constabulary web-site - click on the green icon;
Alternatively, you can use 'Crimestoppers' to make a report anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or by using their on-line contact form.
In an emergency, or if you witness a crime in progress, always use '999'.
