Update

If you have any non urgent issues please get in touch with our team on 077711 147171 or you can come and meet us at one of our community meetings listed on the events page.

If you need crime prevention advice please take a look at the Be Safe section of our website where you can find out how to keep you and your family safe. Alternatively give us a call and we will be happy to give you advice or call 101 and ask for Crime reduction Advisor

There has been a slight increase in dwelling burglaries across the division. Please remember to keep all doors and windows securely locked. Do not leave any keys or items of value near windows or on obvious display. Please consider using timers on lamps to act as a deterrent. Remember that outside security lights act as a strong deterrent. Make your property look secure at all times. Consider installing an alarm. Ensure that your house appears occupied at all times. Remember CLOSE IT, LOCK IT AND CHECK IT!
Always beware of Bogus Callers who try and enter properties by pretending to be from one agency or another, i.e. gas, water board etc. Once inside your property they will try to distract you, enabling possibly another person to enter the property and steal anything to be of useful value. It is also worthwhile to security mark all your expensive/attractive items which will assist in the property being returned to you if that once stolen they are found by police. Also for the ladies to be especially careful. Your belongings may mean a lot to you but to a thief they’re just a way of making quick and easy cash.
Burglars can strike at any time but most burglaries can be prevented by securing your home.

Most burglars are opportunists and in 3 out of 10 burglaries, access is gained through an open door or window in particular rear windows.
Burglars love it when you make their job easier for them. There are simple steps you can take to beat the burglar. For more information please view the "Burglary" section

How many of us have thought about recording the serial numbers or property marking it, be it a cycle, electrical goods, garden equipment or mobile phone it may have a serial number. You can record your serial numbers free or charge at www.immobolise.com and there are a number of property marking products available like indelible pens, SelectaDNA, Smart Water, CRE mark by CRE products to name but a few.

Mobile phone and personal music devices: Don’t forget to make a note of the IME number of a mobile phone, to find it key in *#06#, with this if it’s stolen you can block it. On many mobile phones you can download an “App” to find your phone and more importantly wipe that data stored on it, check your “App store” or mobile phone provider. When texting or talking on phones, or listening to music remain “in touch” with your surroundings, a number of road accidents, thefts and assaults occur when we fail to note what’s going on around us, don’t forget to pass this information on to the children

Please be vigilant for persons who may be looking at potential 'targets' and if you see anything at all suspicious please give us a call with as much information as you can.

Police are conducting various operations in an effort to locate the offenders and we strongly urge residents to secure their cars when parked overnight. Remove all items of value and, once the vehicle has been secured, place the keys away from the house front door and out of sight.

For more crime reduction advice please visit the Be Safe section of our website.

Speeding is perceived as a problem within the town area. A Community Speed Watch (CSW) has been created, involving local residents, in an effort to reduce traffic speeds. CSW has been proactive and makes a great effort to help make the roads safer by educating our road users. However, on occasions police work alongside them and issue tickets to offending drivers. Residents should make themselves aware of the speed limits throughout South Woodham Ferrers and avoid getting a ticket.

If you have any information about any crime I would be pleased to hear from you. Or, if you wish to report a crime anonymously you can do this by speaking to Crimestoppers. You will find the Crimestoppers link in our site.

You can also get involved in making your community a safer place by enlisting with your local Neighbourhood Watch. Information packs can be obtained from the Community Information Centre, Baron Road, South Woodham Ferrers.

You can take action in a number of ways to help make your neighbourhood a safer place to live, work and visit.
