Please be vigilant and if you see anything suspicious happening, report it to the Police on 111.

It's also a good opportunity to have a chat with your neighbours about keeping an eye out for each other. 

It may also be a good time to introduce them to Neighbourhood Support if they don't already belong.

We're finding that the streets with strong, resilient neighbourhood support groups generally are less affected by opportunistic crimes.

If you want more information you can contact me by return email, phone 03 420 9944, or through the website .
