The number of robberies and motor vehicle crime has not dramatically increased or decreased recently, burglaries have however dropped significantly. There has been a number of key arrests that would have had an effect on this. We are currently running various initiatives on Herne Hill to try and combat these issues.
If we are able to ensure our residence are aware of these issues then by raising awareness I believe this should have a positive affect on numbers. So if we pass on the message, for residence, to be careful by not having their mobile phone on display in the evening/early hours. Also keeping valuables out of sight in vehicles and their homes, making sure doors are double locked and windows closed and locked. As well as being vigilant and not being afraid to call police if they see or witness anything suspicious.
If anyone is interested in have a smart water kit to assist us in combating burglaries then please urge them to call our SNT mobile, if no answer then leave a message.
Also if anyone has any information that they believe may assist us in anyway please call as well.
